Nokia is known for having excellent mapping data and offering which so far was included on its own Symbian phones — and which will come to Windows Phone soon. Espoo flipped the switch on its maps service and this is now available for Android and iPhone users by accessing maps.nokia.com.
Regardless if you’re running Android (Froyo and up) or iOS (version 4 or newer) you will now be able to access Nokia Maps Mobile on your phone that takes advantage of HTML5. Besides the usual map data, the mobile site not only locates you and allows for surrounding place discovery, but it will also enable you to plan your routes or see where the public transport lines will take you. Of course you’ll compare it to Google Maps and Bing and we’re glad that there are several choices available when it comes to maps.
