Euro 2012 commences today, with the first game taking place this evening between Greece and host nation Poland. Are you there? Or heading out soon? Or even just curious about host nations Poland and Ukraine? Nokia’s got your back.
Nokia has just finished transforming Nokia Maps into a hive of knowledge for all things football. Head to the website and type in either ‘football’ or any of the match venues, and Nokia will provide you with a virtual smörgåsbord of information.
Between today and the final on July 1st, Nokia Maps’ football hub will keep you up to date with venue info (as well as tell you how to get there), alongside last minute accommodation and up-to-date match results.
Each of the eight host cities (Warsaw, Kiev, Wroclaw, Kharkiv, Lviv,Gdansk, Poznan and Donectks) has its own page, with relevant info and facts. Like the fact that Warsaw has the thinnest house in the world (97cm wide)… As you do.
It’s an interesting time for online mapping at the moment, with Apple about to pull Google Maps from iOS and Google upping the ante in response. Whether Nokia Maps can evolve into a true competitor to Google Maps remains to be seen, but niceties like this are a good step in the right direction.
