Nokia Maps is now available for Nokia’s Lumia 800 and 710 Windows Phone devices.
Nokia Maps works in a similar way to Microsoft’s Bing local scout. Users can search for local directions and Nokia provides smart routes for walking, driving and public transport. The app will also surface places to see, eat and highlights of local areas. The navigation works step-by-step, similar to Microsoft’s own mapping equivalent. Users can also review locations and share them across their social networks. Locations can be pinned to the Home Screen for quick access to regular places of interest.
Nokia is expected to make its maps application available more broadly but for now it’s available on the Lumia 800 and 710 devices.
