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.

I have tried Google Maps, Waze, Bing Maps and Here... Been a witness to Apple Maps... there is no contest for me, Here IS the best... In fact, when there was a point on the WP platform that maps were omitted... in favor of Here... and I was OK with it (a little irked, as Bing Maps is also helpful depending on the circumstance.) In fact, the entire HERE suite is amazing! Not perfect, but closest from the above mentioned options for my tastes and needs (... so far).
