Nokia’s Mobile Search Finds Its Way to New Corners of the World in the Middle East and Beyond
Nokia today announced that Mobile Search has added new local directory providers from Al Wahda-Express Group of Companies, official publishers of Etisalat Yellow Pages, Saudi Arabia STC Yellow Pages and Egypt Yellow Pages to global markets, making it the online search tool for finding what you want in many parts of the world. Now Nokia users around the globe and the Middle East can benefit from the easy, fast and direct search capabilities of Mobile Search. The addition of new services for Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates further strengthens Nokia’s dedication to bring extensive local directory information directly to your pocket with Mobile Search.
Nokia has teamed with the most comprehensive local directory companies in each respective market to enable easy and precise local searches. Mobile Search users will be able to access local content for Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.
“You can get lost in many parts of the world now, but connect to Mobile Search and you’re soon on the way to your destination, whether it’s a restaurant, business or other local destination. We’re thrilled to be adding so many new local search providers to our Mobile Search offering, it certainly reinforces our dedication to provide local Internet services directly to your pocket,” said Neil Gordon, General Manager, Middle East Africa, Multimedia, Nokia.
“ Al Wahda-Express is delighted to enhance their value proposition by connecting buyers and sellers through Nokia Mobile Search” said Wayne T Foster, CEO of Al Wahda-Express.
Mobile Search has already seen a tremendous increase in users across Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Norway, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom, the markets where Mobile Search was initially launched. The addition of Al WahdaExpress Group of Companies will more than likely have a similar effect in the Middle East region when it becomes fully available. The UAE Yellow Pages directory will officially launch at this year’s Gitex 2006 event, with Egypt and Saudi Arabia Yellow Pages directories being introduced shortly afterwards before the end of the year.
Mobile Search is available in select markets in the standard sales packs of the Nokia N80 Internet Edition, Nokia N80, Nokia N73, Nokia N93, Nokia N70, Nokia N71, Nokia N72, Nokia 6630, Nokia 6680, and Nokia 6681.
