Why Android needs this paid app? We have free Google maps.

Of course, because it has at least something more to offer.

cos in google maps, there are always hidden walkway and stairs/bridges ...etc... and Nokia Maps has them. I'm using both, but now pretty much rely on Nokia Maps and Nokia Drive.

Been using it in NYC, London, Paris, Singapore, Milan and Frankfurt. So far, very accurate.

hey diversity is good and nokia's mapping features are second to none.
But they should bring it down to $0.99 as my friend above quotes we have Google Maps and its pretty damn good!

No one is forcing no one to buy the app...
If an Android or iOS user wants to buy it, it's his/her choice. I'm sure it's not $3.99 for nothing. I agree Google maps is cool, but Nokia maps is not bad either...and i'm sure the price will fall.
