From bendy iPhones and the iOS mess, to Xbox One, Galaxy Notes, the cheapest Windows 8.1 tablet ever and The Fappening (Pt II), we look back at highlights from this week's top news on Neowin.
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.
Nokia is rolling out updates for HERE Maps on Windows Phone, with improved 3D landmarks, more detailed maps in smaller countries, and individual addresses visible on maps in more parts of the world.
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's HERE maps division has announced plans to acquire Medio, a Seattle-based company, to improve its location services with real-time search suggestions and provide personalized results .
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 announced it is expanding the reach of its HERE Maps app to include all devices that run on Windows 8.1 or Windows 8.1 RT, after previously offering it just on the Lumia 2520 tablet.
Nokia has removed its iOS version of their HERE Maps app from Apple's App Store just over a year after it launched, claiming in a statement that "recent changes to iOS 7 harm the user experience."
A new report claims to have new information on the behind-the-scenes deal making between Microsoft and Nokia, stating that the final talks between them were over how to handle mapping software rights.
While Microsoft is planning to purchase much of Nokia's business, the Finland company will still be around after the deal closes as it concentrates its efforts on three businesses.
Nokia has announced that Microsoft will be acquiring the company's Devices and Services business, along with licensing Nokia's patents, and the license and use of Nokia's mapping services.
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.
Nokia has had to answer to rumours that it was planning to enter into the Android Phone market, following a recent job posting searching for a software engineer to work in “Embedded Linux Middleware.”
