HERE today, here tomorrow; Nokia to keep licensing its mapping application to Microsoft
But now that Nokia is no longer responsible for Windows Phone hardware, there is no reason why the company shouldn't try to license HERE to all platforms. "We used to develop for 'Windows Phone first," the Nokia spokesperson noted, but he added that the firm now views all operating systems as equal.
Besides keeping its mapping data and related technology, Nokia continues to own its intellectual property, and has given Microsoft the rights to use these patents for ten years. On the flip side, Nokia is allowed to use patents that Microsoft has received for improvements and features related to HERE.
