Nokia's Maps Rebranding, They are calling it "Here"

Today's event at San Francisco brought unexpected, a new mapping solution for not only Nokia's hardware but to all iOS and Android devices. Here, is what they are calling it. They used POV mapping technology company Earthmine, which they bought earlierly, to create street imagery. 

If you got a Nokia account, this service syncs your maps between different devices, so you get a more consistent mapping (personal) data on all your devices.

The Verge
Under the hood, Nokia is touting its "capture, compute, experience" system, which combines both local and cloud-based computing. The method, Nokia says, offers faster local rendering, low-bandwidth requirements, and a more robust offline experience. The same system will also be extended beyond Windows Phone, with Nokia planning to release dedicated Here apps on Android, iOS, and Mozilla's Firefox OS (Here is also accessible through mobile web browsers).
This new bold move of Nokia really can make Google Maps a second choice if it is able to provide robust, clean, hassle free integration over all devices. Also, for people who are still offended by iOS 6 Maps, they can go to Here's official website to use it in the browser. 

No word though on when all the apps will be available in the respective stores but it will good to see, Nokia is going Cross platform with their new service called Here.

Here is live right now. You can visit to access maps provided by Nokia.
