Nokia has launched a road show which lets the Nokia N8 users know the possibilities they can enjoy with their Nokia smartphone. The road show was started with Bollywood actor Gisselle Monteiro in New Delhi where Nokia showcased how users would be able to enjoy mini racing by remote controlling their mini racing cars through Nokia N8.
This was just a showcase of what the users would be able to do and is not available currently in the markets. Nokia has worked with Bangalore based developers Divum and the first project includes an app running on the Nokia N8 that lets consumers control mini model cars through WiFi and motion sensing.
Nokia is also running a competition called, “Invent the future with Nokia”, inviting entries from consumers for their ideas on what they would want to control with the Nokia smartphone. The winner’s idea will be actioned in real-life – and they will get to work with the developers.
Users are able to actually control the remote controlled cars through WiFi and motion sensing using an app on Nokia N8, and the best part is users can control the cars through Internet irrespective of where they are located. Consumers will also be able to meet the developers behind the app, Divum, and get a sneak peek into their next project with the Nokia N8.
Announcing the competition, Viral Oza, director, marketing, Nokia India, said, “As a leader in mobile technology, innovation is always at the centre of what we do. Smart devices are one of the three key focus areas for Nokia, according to our global strategy announced earlier this year. We believe that smartphones will continue to evolve and enable consumers to communicate with a host of other gadgets & do a lot more with their devices.”
