    Don’t say “Kumbaya” yet so fast and in such a hurry. Supposing Apple doesn’t approve the app? Or maybe the app will cost very much or have a hefty monthly billing in addition before yoi can use?? Would it be so great then afterwards?

    Until I see the app, I’d just presume that Nokia is at it again. Poor implementation of products and protracted period of delay after the announcement before its eventual release.

    Another confounding observation is that the map wouldn’t be available on Nokia Belle devices. Nokia’s own offering.

    So what’s the game plan, chief?

    the game plan is to inexorably keep weakening the Nokia brand to the point where Microsoft can pick it up for peanuts.

    Hmm.

    good news for the Robots, and specifically for the herd of long_suffering iSheep!

    My understanding is that this map is going to be free when released into the markets. However, Apple not allowing it on their store would be bad for them because there will be web version as well and iOS users will use that.

    The map shows that Nokia is not as dead as we thought. The legendary map given out on commission and placed on any OS is sure to make people want to buy that OS. So Nokia in effect could have another source of revenue.

    I have been and still am a lover of any map by Nokia. They earned my respect for their superb turn by turn voice navigation and offline support. A feat never reproduced by any known map maker free or paid when you consider the wide reach.

Please comment with your real name using good manners.
