Microsoft has officially revealed that the Windows Phone Maps traffic data would now be powered by data coming from Nokia. This means that Windows Phone users will get more data on more street, which translates to better alternative routes, which ultimately keeps you on time, and makes your boss happy, which puts food on your table (/jk).
While this announcement is “news”, it really is the continuation of what was announced earlier between Bing Maps and Nokia. The other bits of news is that this launched in many countries right away (list below), but not in every cities for each country. It’s fair to guess that large cities will be supported first, but drop a comment to tell us what you’re seeing for your own area.
Launch countries for today: Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Mexico, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Russia, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, Ukraine, and the United Kingdom.
