Windows Phone 8 to use Nokia map technology

 

Posted by: Brett

As announced by Microsoft, Windows Phone 8 will use Nokia map technology in it’s maps application. The application will have NAVTEQ map data, offline map support, map control for developers, turn by turn directions, and more. I’m expect it to compete with Apple’s new Maps app in iOS 6, especially since Nokia’s maps have 3D graphics.

This is a developing story.
