Nokia to Offer Consumers Safety Suite
Today Nokia announced a new partnership with Securitas, and plans to offer a suite of safety and security products for consumers. To start, four new services will be available, and all of them make use of location/GPS information. The first, Assist, lets users connect to Securitas' alarm central and provides information about who is connected. The second, Find, provides your friends' current position. The third, Zone, delivers an SMS if someone leaves or comes into a predefined area. Fourth, Friends, gives an overview of where all your friends are located. The four are packaged as Safe-2-Go and will become available in the first half of 2009. Nokia did not offer pricing information.
