Here’s a nice change of pace; rather than reviewing the phone itself someone has finally given the awesome support apps a second glance, and I’m quite sure they’re happy they did. Engadget took the Lumia 900 on a Nation-wide trek and suffice to say the phone did not disappoint, with the wrap-up being:
I can confidently say that Nokia Drive is the best purely offline navigational tool on the market
Check out the review at the source link, it’s a very nice piece which details exactly why Nokia Drive is so awesome, just one piece of information you won’t find in the post, when you search for a place offline (eg: McDonalds) if available the app will also provide you with contact details of the location including phone number and address, pretty sweet if you want to reserve ahead,eh?
*Note: they acknowledge the fact that Nokia Drive’s features have been available on Symbain for a while now, but overall switching to a Symbian phone wasn’t worth the better navigation:
Nokia has been a player. At that time, it was the outfit’s Ovi Maps leading the pack, offering the only legitimate offline solution amongst a legion of ho-hum alternatives that required bits of data to keep you on track. But frankly, there wasn’t a Symbian device in Nokia’s stable that could show up my Nexus One in terms of overall utility, so begrudgingly, I pushed it aside
