The announcement:

Time Out Sydney entertainment listings, restaurant and bar reviews available for free on Nokia’s Ovi Maps

Time Out Sydney is today making its entertainment listings and restaurant and bar reviews available for free on Nokia’s Ovi Maps (http://maps.ovi.com/).

Nokia users can now access Time Out’s Sydney entertainment guide featuring the best of what’s on, what to do and where to go in Sydney including up and coming gigs, comedy line ups, gallery openings and festivals.

Melbourne entertainment listings and restaurant and bar reviews will be added in November, with Brisbane and Perth following next year.

Time Out entertainment listings and reviews are also now available through Ovi Maps for London, New York, Lisbon, Singapore and Kuala Lumpur. More than 33 Time Out cities will be rolled out on Ovi Maps in the coming months.

Ovi Maps is available for free on all Nokia smart phones including the Nokia N97 mini, Nokia E72, Nokia X6, Nokia N97 and Nokia 5800. The addition of Time Out broadens the range of premium content that is already available on Ovi Maps. Since launching earlier this year, there have been more than 10 million downloads of Ovi Maps worldwide.

Julian Peterson, Marketing & Online Director of Time Out, said: “Time Out is delighted to team up with Nokia to make our content available to both Sydneysiders and visitors when they are on the move. Nokia users can now get free, up-to-date information on nearby restaurants, bars, gigs, events and entertainment through Ovi Maps.”
