The first turn-by-turn voice guided navigation application for Nokia’s Maemo platform is here. Sygic Mobile Maps has just become compatible with Maemo, and brings animated 3D maps to your Nokia N900. Although Ovi Maps was released with free voice guided navigation for Nokia’s Symbian devices, there has been no indication of imminent support for the Maemo platform. Sygic have timely released there solution for a very tasty price tag of €59.99 (Europe). What’s more is that Sygic’s maps are created by Navteq, an operating unit of Nokia and leading global provider of digital map, traffic and location data, as is Ovi Maps. We’ll be testing this newcomer over the weekend and will feedback to you our thoughts sometime next week. But for now, check out the full list of features including the video demo after the break.

When taking a step back from the fast growing mobile devices industry, we can see that technology has progressed far beyond what we initially expected. Mobile phones as we knew them are now a thing of the past as they now pack more than just telephony features. Most mobile handsets now come with many modern standards in terms of features; high quality photo capture and video recording capabilities, turn-by-turn navigation, connectivity choices from Bluetooth to sharing online, and web browsing technologies emulating the desktop experience.

In October 2009 Londoner’s woke up to see a signpost the size of two London buses suspended next to Tower Bridge, and we were lucky enough to be there for the launch courtesy of WOMWorld. The sign celebrated the release of the Nokia N97 mini with built-in Ovi Maps, and asked people to send in their “Good Things.” It swung around all day to point to all the “Good Things” from all around the world, and although the sign has since been removed, the good things remain and have got even better. Check out the event footage after the break.
