Nokia encourages Brits to step out of comfort zone with new tablet

The average adult in Britain relies on their smart device to get around within 10km of their own home, according to a new study.

Research commissioned by HMD Global - the home of Nokia phones - has found that a fifth of Brits have either lost or are starting to lose their sense of adventure.

The study shows people across the UK have been staying in their comfort zones, with the a quarter of adults charging their device before heading out on foot, while a third of 18-34-year-olds rely on their device to avoid getting lost and a quarter have cut travels short if their device's battery was low or dead.

However, a fifth of Brits want to get more adventurous after lockdown, and three quarters want to explore "everything that the UK has to offer" once they feel safe to do so.

Responding to people's fears of batteries dying keeping them from getting out, explorer and author Levison Wood has ecnouraged people to use the Nokia T20 with a battery that allows for 15 hours of surfing the web, seven hours of conference calls, or 10 hours streaming.

Levison said: "There's a whole world out there ready and waiting for us all to experience. It's great to see so many people have a sense of adventure with the desire to explore the great outdoors in all its glory.

"I appreciate that some adventures on our list of goals can be daunting, but with the right equipment and a bit of know-how, it's easier to overcome challenges than you might expect.

"Thanks to its long-lasting battery life, the brand-new Nokia T20 tablet is designed to take you further and give you the confidence that you need to climb the highest mountain or explore the deepest woodland forest."

And Juha Werkkala - Senior Product Marketing Manager at HMD Global- added: "Built for work, learning and play, the Nokia T20 tablet offers everything you would expect from a Nokia phone in a tablet.

"Tablets are brilliant devices for map reading, travel and navigation, so with our LTE version, you can enjoy built in GPS to explore beyond your home."
