Posted by on Aug 09, 2010 | Leave a Comment

Nokia launched a local marketplace service for Indian mobile phone users called “Nokia Listings”. Nokia Listing service is designed for emerging markets and this service also works on S-40 series phones. This beta version of the service is available for India with India content. The client will work in other geographies over HTTP but not all features may be functional. There are no fees for using the service except SMS and data charges from your operator.


The product supports listings for “Jobs”, “Buy and Sell” and “Local Services” as described below:

  • Jobs: As an employer, you can post jobs and review candidates who have applied for the job. As a job seeker you can search for jobs by category, location and salary, and apply.
  • Buy and Sell: You can search and post items (mobile phones, bikes, etc) that you are looking to buy or sell.  You can contact seller or buyer by calling or by sending an SMS.
  • Local Services: You can search for service providers like plumbers, architects, lawyers, etc in your locality.  As a local service provider, you can list on the marketplace and be found by potential customers


The client works on recent Series 40 phones. This would include devices such as: Nokia 2700 Classic, 2730 Classic, 3120 Classic, Nokia 5130 XpressMusic, 5310 XpressMusic, Nokia 5330 Xpressmusic, Nokia 5610, Nokia 6300i, Nokia 6303, Nokia X3, Nokia C3, etc. The client will work on non-touch S60 phones like E63, E71, E72, etc with but the experience may be sub-optimal on some of these devices.
