After months of rumors and speculation, Nokia has finally revealed that it has sold its mapping and location service, HERE, to a consortium of German auto-makers including BMW and Audi.
Uber recently acquired mapping technology from Microsoft, but it seems its bid to buy Nokia's HERE platform has failed, as the Finnish company reportedly favors a bid from BMW, Audi and Mercedes-Benz.
Uber has reportedly joined the race for Nokia's HERE Maps location business by submitting an offer of $3 billion in a bid to beat rival bids from automakers, Microsoft, Facebook and Google.
One of the highlights of Nokia's smartphone range has arguably been the Here Maps suite but according to a new report, the Finnish manufacturer is reportedly considering a sale of its prized asset.
Users of HERE Maps on those platforms should check the update button as new data, alongside improvements in turn-by-turn navigation and public transit, are being pushed to the app.
HERE has announced that their application has hit 2.5 million downloads since its release on Android a few weeks ago which is quite a feat. HERE Maps for iOS is also expected to debut in 2015.
A Nokia executive has said that the company is scaling back - but not completely ending - its development work on HERE Maps for Windows Phone, as it now plans to focus its efforts on Android and iOS.
HERE has updated its maps, offering a better visual experience with updated colors, terrain shading, and more. The new maps will only be available online and later on mobile OS's.
Nokia has appointed Rajeev Suri as its new CEO and President. Nokia will have three areas of focus to improve the quality of its business and solidify its new place in the mobile industry.
Nokia has updated both HERE Drive and HERE Transit for Windows Phone, bringing new features but also killing the exclusivity tag, allowing the app to be installed on all Windows Phone 8 devices
Nokia has launched a new feature for its HERE Maps applications on Windows Phone 8: LiveSight - similar to the augmented reality City Lens function found on Lumia devices.
Nokia has now relaunched a number of its Lumia exclusive apps for Windows Phone 8 under the HERE brand and has made some of them available for all Windows Phone 8 devices.
Yesterday Nokia launched HERE, their new mapping and location platform. It brings together all of Nokia's location technology and services and will be available across most platforms.
