Great to see it is available in South Africa as well. I'm getting a Lumia in about a month and can't wait to "help out" making Windows Phone more popular here

This is something that MS needed. While not horrible by any stretch of the imagination, Bing maps is actually pretty decent. Just in no way of the quality or ease of use of Google maps. Nokia's maps are very user friendly. As a Samsung WP user, I am pumped to be getting a little something from the partnership.
