Here Maps for Android now available on Samsung Galaxy phones
At the end of August, Nokia shared important information about the fate of its Here Maps offering, namely, that it will soon be available for Android users. There was a catch though: as an effect on an agreement between Nokia and Samsung, Here Maps for Android will initially be only available for Samsung Galaxy devices.
If you do, however, have a such a gadget in your hand, look for Here Maps for Android (currently in beta) in the Samsung Galaxy Apps Store, also linked in the source below. You’ll be able to take advantage of offline maps and turn-by-turn navigation in all those situations where you can’t rely (don’t want to) on Google Maps. Sadly, for now, you have to have a Samsung Galaxy device to use the app itself, until Nokia decides to open the offering up to other manufacturers’ devices as well (or until the community works its magic and unlocks it).
