Ovi Maps is the direction finder of choice and comes on the Nokia X7 in its new updated format that includes public transport routes. There are lots of other apps pre-installed too.

Maps look great on the big screen and there are plenty of views on offer including 2D and 3D views and a night mode for when you need things that little bit less bright. You can even overlay transit lines – such as the tube lines in London, and scrolling around the application was generally slick, although the constant loading did produce a little judder.

A folder labelled Office contains all manner of bits and bobs including a calculator, voice recorder, notes app, Adobe Reader and QuickOffice for viewing – but not editing – Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents.

You've also got the BBC iPlayer which uses the aforementioned Flash Lite player - although unlike the long-forgotten Nokia N96, we can't download the files to view later.

And the Ovi App Store is on hand to boost your apps list as and when needed - but could do with being much more widely stocked. It will be interesting to see what effect the Nokia Windows Phone handsets have on this portal - will users get access to the thousands of extra apps created for Microsoft's platform?
