For Asia is should be called NOKIA THERE, coz it sure is not very good HERE.

Its strange that some people lwant maps to be good only where you live and in FAMILIAR places, and not in places you may wanna go where not everyone else goes. Would love to see how "Nokia THERE" would help us get around when a road in an UNFAMILIAR place here was closed due to accident or flood or whatever.

Nokia There looks detailed enough for big famous cities in SE Asia but once outside it fails miserably when compared to google maps.

Nokia please stick with Micro and give a break to iOS and Android. We do not want you to inflict your failure on other devices.

Awsome Nokia, but i dont think Apple will aprove this.
They will just copy it. And they will acuse Nokia of using their patent!

Nokia should improve the basics first. In smaller cities Nokia Maps look ridiculous compared to Google Maps. Nokia just don't have the potential Google has with SAT images, StreetView fleed etc.

I don't get it. How is Nokia differentiating their phones from others?
