Nokia N810, it’s not a phone, but can I have ten please

At a management training session on Friday I was discussing various GPS devices with the Head of School who has a responsibility for Geography.

After discussing various options, we eliminated the Acer C530 as it comes with routing software, we decided against the Nokia N95 as without a contract it costs too much and with a contract is too much hassle and decided on the Nokia N810 (it’s not a phone you know). So we are going to get ten of these devices and see how they go.

The Nokia N810 which has a wireless capability does come with GPS and mapping software, however does not come with routing software (this is an €99 extra). The Head of School specifically did not want routing software, but wants to use GPS, so the N810 is ideal.

We are also going to subscribe to Digimap which will allow us as a college to utilise digitised ordnance survey maps within the college to design learning scenarios with the Nokia N810. The Nokia N810 does come with maps, but Digimap will allow us to use Ordnance Survey maps to create learning resources to use with the Nokia N810.
