I will wait for Nokia with Win 8 and if its not up to my expectations/requirements from an OS, I will buy SGS III. Nokia is really trying hard and coming up with true advancements but Mango with so many limitations makes me wait for Apollo.

What was Nokia smoking when they decided to create Drive for WP? Not only is it a complete tear down of the amazing Symbian Nokia Maps app with basic functionality, there is NO CONNECTION between Maps and Drive at all. If you want to have a seperate application, that's fine, but when you go into Nokia Maps, and ask for directions, there should be an option to navigate which would lead you right into Nokia Drive so you can do that. But there isn't. That makes no sense to me at all. So now I have to copy the address, and open up Drive myself, which is completely counterproductive. Then there's everything else that's wrong with the two. Drive should recognize the time that's on the phone and adjust the map coloring based upon that time. I shouldn't have to select night mode myself. It still doesn't tell you whether your destination is on the left or right, and something that really ticks me off is how I can't get all my favorites from my Symbian phones onto my 900. That was one of 5 reasons I bought the phone to begin with. Didn't Nokia want Symbian users to make the transition to WP? Wouldn't they want to make that transition as smooth and painless as possible? Nokia Maps 3.06 for Symbian was the last great maps app they made. This app bundle is a step backwards as far as I'm concerned.

i wonder if this feature will work in all continents like for example, Asia or Middle east? But all in all update is a good thing.
