HERE Maps confirmed to support Tizen
The technology of HERE is based on cloud computing model, just like Google Maps, in which location data and services are being stored on remote servers so that HERE users have access to it regardless of which device and platform they use. HERE Maps will not become a part of Microsoft, as part of its acquisition of Nokia's Devices division, because it is an independent entity, which will allow them to freely license their service to other companies in the future.

Tizen. The OS nobody wants, and the OS nobody asked for

No, it's Verizon and Motorola who made Android big with the Droid.

Its a shame that instead of making HERE maps for Symbian(their own) phones they are heading for OS such as Tizen which has not even born yet. Millions of people still use symbian phones.

that is so kind of Nokia to go and support Tizen also.
It is be equally nice if they remember WP7.5 users and provide them with Here Maps support too.
