Nokia Is Nok-Nok-Nokking on TomTom's Door With Free Turn-By-Turn NavigationS

Following Google's momentous news last October about free turn-by-turn navigation on Android phones, Nokia's just now abolished the price-tag for 74 countries. That's 73 more than Google offers it to. And even better news—it's available now.

You'll need a Nokia phone with Ovi Maps (which runs on Navteq's digital mapping, who Nokia bought out in 2008), for getting free drive and walk navigation; maps updates; and events, Lonely Planet and Michelin guides. Currently it's only available on the X6, N97 Mini, E72, E55, E52, 6730 Classic, 6710 Navigator, 5800 XpressMusic, 5800 Navigation Edition and the 5230.

If you've got one of those phones, hit up Nokia over here and download it now. Let us know how you get on with it—supposedly it works offline? [Nokia Maps via Nokia Conversations]
