Bad commercial aside, this is why I love Nokia. Iv'e used android extensively and apart from HTC's "Sense", it continues to frustrate the crap out of me.

Nice. It is old tech though as the other commenter posted but hey, at least they are implementing it now. Gotta start somewhere. Good job Nokia. Now get me that Meego device Please Nokia =^.^=
i understand the guy go to the airport to buy an umbrella???
do you really need a tracking device to buy an umbrella?
this is a nice innovation, but it is not possible to implement in many country yet, just like talk only...
Another innovation by Nokia! I'm really impressed and I'm sure it's going to be another must have feature. I expect Android to copy this and produce another half-baked implementation like they always do. Start your photocoppiers Android!
This kind of system is, actually, old news. Try googling "active bat" and you'll recognize it immediately. It's been done since around 2000 but the fact that you need to wear a tag is a turn-off. If Nokia can manage to fool enough people into thinking this is cool, it might have a slight chance, but, realistically speaking, it's a dead end. And I'm not talking out of my a**... I'm currently finishing a PhD about positioning technologies, so I'm familiar with this and I'm really not impressed.
Get your facts right, Ericsson invented bluetooth and was also behind Symbian, long before Nokia.
As for the color displays, i dont think that anyone beats T68 in Europe,
but Europe was a year behind, at least, since the day the Asian market already had color displays.
Nokia was always good at advertising and milking, they always copied and improved/adapted tech, not actually create...
This is the reason they have lost the ball in the latest years, now tech matters way much more than brand name and they cant afford to stay one year after their competitors and rely on their name, as they have always had.
Hopefully they will start investing some of all that profit they made all those years now and present us more gadgets like this one!
just follow the tabelas, you can find anywhere in a building
i've heard about this a year ago in nokia podcast. It sounds promising and totally useful.
All those who said nokia is dead, please raise your hands.

That was Nokia that brought most features that phones have today: color display, bluetooth, internal antennas, real web browsing and much more... It's Nokia that bring to market all usefull new features, that's why Nokia is amazing.
Not practical anyway, you need those "indicator" in every building that you wanna apply it. Troublesome and costly.
Well, Nokia still amazing people, that why is a great Company....
