Win a 6210 Navigator and some fat green creatures in Nokia's latest contest.

In an effort to get Nokia Maps into the spotlight, Nokia is hosting a “test your knowledge of the world” contest. It’s actually a pretty cool flash game: you have a world map, push-pins, and 10 different cities, and the goal is to drop the push-pins as close to the actual location as possible. You get bonus points if you can get the location within a certain distance.

The grand prize for all of this madness is a Nokia 6210 Navigator phone, and you get that from having the absolute highest score at the end of the contest period. Also, each week’s top 50 high scorers win a collection of Mapster (TM) figurines.

I scored a grand total of 70k, and it looks like the highest score right now is 495,900. Nice.

There’s also a “create your own map” feature that is in reality a giant animated ad for Nokia Maps. As well as a bunch of random “mapster” things strewn all over the place.
