Lost PacMan

Whilst out jogging and monitoring his performance Pacman turns a right-angled corner and comes face to face with his enemies, the ghosts. A change of pace is quickly required.

Sports Tracker

Whether you're training for the London 2012 Olympics, the London to Brighton Charity bike ride, or going for a Sunday jog, the Nokia Sports Tracker is like having your very own Personal Trainer and Personal Navigator in your pocket.

Not that it'll shout at you for going too slowly of course, but whether you're running or cycling it will monitor and record your route, distance, speed, time, calories burnt and even altitude.

If that magical moment comes and you bypass a Kenyan athlete bent over double, and wish to record the moment for posterity, you can take a picture with your phone and pinpoint the exact spot where it was taken on your route.

And then, when it's all over and some feeling has returned to your limbs, you can upload your workout to your personal training diary, and then share it with your mates, assuming you wish to gloat of course.

Nokia Maps is a new service that helps you find nearby venues, and will soon enable you to locate your friends. Wherever you happen to be in the world and whatever you're looking for, with Nokia Maps you'll always know where you are.
