Could this bit of news be a redeeming feature for the ailing handset manufacturer from Finland? You decide – we are talking about Nokia Maps which traditionally was available only on Nokia devices, but has since expanded to see action on iOS and Android platforms. Well, that makes perfect sense since both iOS and Android-powered devices have long since surpassed Nokia’s market share where smartphones are concerned. With the latest version of Nokia Maps for iOS and Android, it seems that offline maps are now supported in addition to public transport directions.
Apart from that, POI information (Points Of Interest) has also been thrown into the mix, which is a positive development since this browser-based Nokia maps is not the full integrated application that you find on Symbian-powered handsets as well as the Nokia N9 which runs on the MeeGo operating system.
