    What's keeping Google from introducing Nav in most parts of the world?

    Had I known before deciding on which phone OS to get, I guess my decision would have been something else...

    They're working on it. In June they added Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, and Switzerland.

    So you based your decision on what phone had navigation? That's fair I guess. What phone provides free navigation in Scandinavia?

    Nokia, from Finland, Scandinavia, does. At least in your country of residence.

    Oh cool. Good to know. Here in the states Google was pretty much the first to provide a fully free service like this.
