The UAE based operator, Etisalat has inked a deal to offer access to Nokia's mobile internet portal, Ovi to its customers. In the first phase of the collaboration, Etisalat's UAE mobile customers will be able to access Ovi Maps and N Gage Games on their Nokia devices.
Subscribers to Ovi Maps and purchasers of N-Gage games can choose to combine their payments for these advanced mobile internet based services with their Etisalat account. The payment will be directed to their account automatically, if chosen accordingly, while customers will also have the existing option of paying through their credit cards.
The United Arab Emirates will be the first country in the Middle East and Africa to roll out this service during Q2, 2009, while the cooperation will be extended to other Etisalat operations in the Middle East and Africa in due course.
