Microsoft Boots Bing Maps for Nokia in Windows Phone 8

By Sam Biddle on at

We saw this coming, and we're glad it's true: Windows Phone 8 will replace Bing Maps with Nokia's stellar mapping tech.

The Nokia data will be available offline — a huge perk — and include turn by turn directions, 3D, and fast public transport planning. It takes a big man to admit his own son is terrible, and replace that son with a beautiful Finnish daughter. Goodbye Bing, and we look forward to Nokia's cartographical greatness.
