BlackBerry Storm 9500 Smartphone on the Vodafone network will see Telmap power the latest Vodafone Find & Go service, a personal search, mapping and navigation service designed specifically for their most advanced touchscreen user interface.
The BlackBerry Storm, offered across the Vodafone network offering a more personalised navigation experience for people on the move, features include in-car 3D maps with text to speech technology, traffic alerts with alternative route options, as well as a pedestrian mode. Additional features include cell data positioning when GPS is not available, a dynamic content deck that empower Vodafone to dynamically offer premium content to their subscribers and the ability to integrate with third party application providers.
Commenting, Oren Nissim, CEO at Telmap, said: “This launch marks the point at which the world caught up with the Apple iPhone. The BlackBerry Storm perfectly combines experience and technology integration. Vodafone’s Find & Go new features provide consumers with an experience that goes beyond simple turn by turn navigation with search and the availability of real time local information, and towards tomorrow’s generation of mobile location based services.”
