Nokia Drive Reportedly Hacked on to Other Windows Phones

When Nokia recently announced its current flagship Windows Phone, the Nokia Lumia 800, we’ve seen it come with a couple of exclusive software bits in order to both differentiate Espoo from other manufacturers and to give future owners additional reasons to go Nokia.

Among others, Nokia Drive is such an exclusive; the free, 3D, turn-by-turn, voice-enabled navigation solution will come pre-installed on all Nokia Windows Phones. According to reports, the software has been cracked and hacked over to other Windows Phones, not made by Nokia. Of course it is rather easy for one to sideload an app to Windows Phone thanks to Microsoft and Chevron but will this mean that Windows Phone will be facing a new problem: piracy?
