Nokia this morning announced two deals with leading Chinese Internet companies SINA and Tencent, who will be integrating with Nokia’s Ovi Maps in China.

Millions of users of SINA’s microbloging service and Tencent’s massively popular online community QQ (636 million users and counting) will be able to share their location through Nokia mobile devices, check-in to locations and upload content tied to location, such as recommendations and reviews of restaurants, shops and movie theatres.

The first location-based services for SINA and Tencent customers through Ovi Maps are planned to be available during the first quarter of 2011.

Nokia says more than 250 million people (!) are currently using a Nokia device in China.

  • http://ftmdaily.com/precious-metals-market-update-tom-cloud/ where to buy silver

    Investing in gold and silver bullion
    is an excellent source of profit, especially in times of crisis. Silver is a
    precious metal just like gold, is not easily destructible, and is not affected
    by both the deflation and inflation of the value of money. The price of silver
    bullion depends on its weight in ounce and is fixed in gold/silver ratios.
    Although silver is very much cheaper than gold, some items like collector’s
    coins cost much more than gold, depending on the maker, the year, and the
    condition of the item.
