Gokivo Navigator will be pre-installed on the coming Sony Ericsson Aspen smartphone model.
TCS has announced that they will be powering the turn-by-turn navigation on the new Sony Ericsson Aspen smartphone. The phone will be available with the Gokivo Navigator application preloaded, providing Aspen users with immediate access to search and navigation services. The Sony Ericsson Aspen phone is the first Windows Mobile device to leverage the new partnership between Sony Ericsson and TCS. The navigation functions integrate with Sony Ericsson's On the Road panel, and users are able to press a maps button to automatically launch Gokivo Navigator and provide immediate access to a powerful voice-guided turn-by-turn navigation experience.
"Consumers have come to expect turn-by-turn navigation on their mobile devices," said Doug Antone, senior vice president of TCS' navigation and telematics group. "At TCS, we strive to provide a product that gives users the peace of mind that they will always be able to find their destination. We have focused our expert development team on making sure Gokivo Navigator is tightly integrated with the core user experience of the Aspen phone, and we believe Sony Ericsson users around the world will appreciate the power of the device and application being put at their fingertips."
"The Sony Ericsson Aspen is truly a next generation smartphone, and we thought it was essential that users had access to a premium navigation solution," said Martin Essl, Head of Windows Mobile Application Proposition Planning at Sony Ericsson. "Gokivo Navigator has everything that we look for from a navigation product, and we feel that turn-by-turn navigation has now become a real strong point for the Sony Ericsson Aspen."
