Google and Nokia have recently announced a partnership that will bring the popular Google search to Nokia customers worldwide, integrating with Nokia’s search application, which aimed to offer fast and easy access to web information from the handset.
“Providing choices for our consumers is an important driver in Nokia’s Internet service strategy,” said Ilkka Raiskinen, vice-president, software and services at Nokia. “This integration allows our consumers the ability to use the innovative search technologies, which have made Google almost synonymous with Internet search.
According to the company, Google Search will first be available on four latest Nokia multimedia cellphones including N96, N78, Nokia 6210 Navigator and Nokia 6220 Classic. The famous Google search service will be extended to additional Nokia cellphone models in the future.
“Adding Google to Nokia Search provides mobile users with fast, relevant and comprehensive search experience that will be familiar to the people who use Google to search the web from their desktop,” said Google’s VP of Engineering and Products for Mobile Vic Gundotra. “Google search combined with the high quality applications on Nokia devices help make information available to Nokia device users wherever they are and provide an excellent overall experience.”
