It is. On my Lumia 920, Cebu is working great on both Nokia Map and Drive+

no it's not. i didn't use nokia maps in my life, nor i know how good they are, but what i do know is that google maps has almost the whole globe covered (i mean basic street mapping, lets not get to street view), so until nokia covers what google already has, it's not even close of being better.

It differs from country to country. In my region (India) nokia maps is better since google maps misses some streets.

I think these addition of maps will benifit offline maps. While google maps needs constant 3g/4g/wifi connection.

Nokia has great mapping services, and certainly does give Google a run for it's money. It simply depends which platform you choose. Android is more popular, but WP8 is good too, and the UI and other features are vastly improved over previous versions (aka Windows Mobile). Ultimately, it's a matter of personal preference...
