Nokia to return to Korea with Nokia 6210 Navigator?
It’s been six years since Nokia shipped any new mobile phones to Korea, but now that the WIPI regulation is being lifted, Nokia is returning to Korea.
Nokia will return to Korea but intend to launch their Nokia 6210 Navigator handset, but the Koreans simply won’t be able to take advantage of the navigator capabilities after launch, and so without the navigation the Nokia 6210 Navigator sort of becomes redundant.
The problem…Korea’s regulations require Nokia to “embed a server with stored map information” so they can offer navigation, but Nokia wants to use a map server based in Singapore and thus this will negate the use of the navigator.
