Nokia and Google announced their partnership to integrate Google search into search applications on more Nokia mobile phones.
The team-up will begin with the Nokia N96, Nokia N78, Nokia 6210 Navigator and Nokia 6220 classic. Google search will be extended to additional Nokia handset models in the future.
Ultimately, Nokia says it will make Google search available to its customers in over 100 countries around the world, serving mobile owners speaking more than 40 languages.
This partnership does not do away with the fierce rivalry that the firms are gunning at with Google’s Android platform set to come to market this year and many of Nokia’s competitors having signed up for that.
