Nokia Beta Labs has released an innovation application known as Nokia Listings which helps buyers and sellers, employers and job seekers, connect with ease. This application is for emerging markets only. Nokias basic goal here is to digitalize the marketplace to users of basic mobile phones (series 40). This application will work via SMS or GPRS.
Nokia Listings is designed for three major categories of listings:
1. Buy & Sell – Find or post items for sale
2. Jobs – Find or post a job
3. Local Services – Access or advertise services such as auto repairs, driver services, plumbers, etc.
Registration is not required over here. It features geo coded listings, which means users automatically will get listings/services nearest to their location. The application supports calling and smsing the other party as well as forwarding a listing via sms.
The beta trial is currently for India only with limited listings. Nokia will obviously expand this through out India and other countries later on.
You can download the application and have a test drive yourself.
All recent Series 40 phones. This would include devices such as: Nokia 2700 Classic, 2730 Classic, 3120 Classic, Nokia 5130 XpressMusic, 5310 XpressMusic, Nokia 5330 Xpressmusic, Nokia 5610, Nokia 6300i, Nokia 6303, Nokia X3, Nokia C3, etc.
