HERE Maps confirmed to support Tizen

HERE Maps confirmed to support Tizen
HERE Maps, which succeeded Ovi Maps and Nokia Maps, has added Tizen to the long list of platforms it supports. This was confirmed via a recent tweet from the HERE Maps business unit. During the Tizen Developer Summit in Korea, which ends today (November 12), developers were shown a demonstration of how they can use the service in order to build location-based apps. There are speculations that HERE might even become the default navigation and map service for 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.

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.
