Nokia is a company that has already conquered the cell phone world, and they are now stepping into uncharted territory with the introduction of their first portable GPS system called the Nokia 330 auto navigation. Today we'll put it through its paces.
The GPS market is currently dominated by companies like Magellan and Garmin, so it will not be easy for Nokia to break into this market and be successful right away. I think that Nokia has done a good job with their first portable GPS system with the 330, although it does lack some key features and is lacking in some categories.
The 330 auto navigation became available in early 2007, although it was available a bit earlier than that in Europe. The MRSP of the 330 is set at $499, which is a decent price but better GPS systems can be purchased for less than that price. I have seen the 330 priced at around $400 at some online stores, so you can get a decent deal on it.
I think that Nokia is on the right track with the release of their first portable GPS system, but they need to improve on future GPS systems in order to compete with the top GPS manufacturers like Garmin and Magellan. Nokia is the kind of company that, if they really want to, will rise to the top of the GPS market just as they have in the cell phone market.
