Nokia Maps HTML5 version out. Shows its glory on iOS & Android devices!
Not many saw this one coming, not even Google, may be! This is huge for Nokia, from service offering point of view. We have used Ovi Maps, tested and loved how easy and reliable it was. After dropping Ovi branding, Nokia has brought this wonderful service out of home.
Making full use of the wonderful HTML 5 web platform they have released the web version which works across major mobile platform and devices that support HTML 5. Makes real sense. This is prowess of HTML 5.
Feature set of Nokia Maps mobile
- Current Location (GPS/AGPS support)
- Searching locations nearby or long distant places
- Directions (Walking routes and Driving Routes)
The web version does easy catch up with the mobile maps app. Though still needs more functionality and polish to catch up with google maps, which won’t take much time for Nokia, i reckon!
Check out the video demo of the same, below!
