Nok Conv officially announces that all WP8 phones, Nokia Lumia and Non Nokia Lumias will get Nokia Drive.
This is a fantastic app I’ve been using on my Lumia. Is it a good thing that it’s appearing on non Nokia phones? Yes and No.
No in that it gave Nokia phones an added value. Free voice turn by turn satnav with Lumia.
- Yes, because HTC is already offering their own turn by turn satnav (though not free)?
- Yes because Nokia may be getting paid for others to use their service.
- Yes because the Nokia brand proliferates. Now mapping is getting tougher with Apple kicking ElGoog out to join the game, trying to make Nokia Drive something more mainstream is necessary. I can’t wait for HTC staff to demo Nokia Drive :p.
Is this a good thing or a bad thing?
