Back in June we’ve heard good news from Nokia with regards to its Drive application which is part of the software suit that the Finnish manufacturer included, out-of-the-box, free of charge, on any of its smartphones, including Windows Phones. They have decided to make the offering available for other Windows Phone devices manufactured by competing OEMs.
Looks like Nokia did not forget about its promise but it can’t currently name phones which will have access to the navigation offering. Instead, we should hear form them “in the coming days”. There’s still speculation on whether the inclusion of Drive with other Windows Phones will be free or commercial. One of the reasons people buy Nokia-made devices is the software suite that comes bundled, as a differentiating factor. We’re quite sure Nokia doesn’t want to lose all that so our money is on a commercial approach where users of HTC and Samsung-made phones will probably be able to purchase Nokia Drive from the Store. Of course, we might be wrong…
