Features of Google Maps for E71

Some of the features that have been added to Nokia E71 are

  • Voice search ability which works like a charm. Sitting here in Chandigarh, India I could locate restaurants, local taxi and movie theaters. Isn’t that cool. I gave the commands in normal English (which means with Indian accent) and still Google Maps got it right! It is amazing. Further I could use the feature over a normal mobile connection.
