USING MY NOKIA E90 and Google Latitude in the Philadelphia area has given me ample opportunity to check out traffic alerts on the phone. It's very straightforward on the Nokia E90's wide screen. While trusting Latitude to map our travels through Philadelphia, a multi-coloured band appeared along our route when Latitude overlaid traffic information (see below). It's a capability that would be well-appreciated in Ireland, a country with a population less than the 5.1m living in the Philadelphia metropolitan area.
Using the Nokia E90 during the seven-hour day showed us another resilient feature of the phone--its battery held up for an always-on internet connection while handling push mail from Nokia and also a few simultaneous web sessions with Facebook, Twitter, and Jaiku. Latitude served up a perfect answer to "diner" while we were motoring along Roosevelt Boulevard. We got an address, phone number and directions to a place serving really good crab cakes.
I know my day-long data ost me more than a tank of petrol but the experience with free maps and highly relevant tourism information was well worth the expense.
