Ho Ho Ho! Santa uses Nokia N8 with Ovi Maps instead of Rudolph's nose
It's one thing to star in a motion picture like the new Tron movie, but the Nokia N8 is on a whole other level when you see it in use by none other than Santa Claus. Santa has installed Ovi Maps on his handset and uses the feature to guide him to the correct addresses.

It seems like a great advertising move by Nokia. The Finnish based manufacturer isn't asking you to believe in Santa, just the Nokia N8. As for Santa, a Nokia spokesman said, "Santa was extremely curious and pleased with the Nokia N8’s functionality and its installation onto his sleigh – and put the device to immediate use".

Haha! Nice concept there... If Santa preloads all the maps via Ovi before taking off. He'll have no problem navigating even in areas with no cellular reception. This was his gripe last year when he was still using Google maps, had to rely on Rudolph who was not getting any younger. :)
