Where are Nokia's maps? Right HERE, in the Samsung Galaxy Apps Store
Nokia is now offering a beta version of its heralded HERE maps, for the Samsung Galaxy Apps Store. The app is free for those clutching a Samsung branded Android powered smartphone, thanks to a licensing agreement between the two firms. Eventually, Nokia expects to have HERE maps available on the Google Play Store for a whole slew of Android handsets.

One of the big advantages of Nokia's mapping app is that it allows you to use it without an internet connection. Think about all of the data that you could save by being offline while using the mapping application.

The app is available for those Samsung handsets powered by Android 4.1 or higher, and weighs in at 36.82MB. The HERE beta also includes Glympse, which lets you select a period of time during which your location can be viewed by others. Once Glympse is turned off, your location is hidden.

Going to love how many people played down HERE when it was a Nokia and Windows Phone exclusive... Seems like now there's a slight change of tone. :) Rightfully so, having HERE was a great part of the Windows Phone experience. Still is... Also love how much attention it got on the WP platform from the "reviewers" and tech bloggers... although now it is on everyone's radars. Just a bit funny to me.

"Going to love how many people played down HERE when it was a Nokia and Windows Phone exclusive...

Good luck on that research project....lol. As for the radar...thats what happens then you have a market share lead like Android. I didnt even know it was already on iOS until looking around now....lol

GOT IT at Samsung's App Store! Thank you! One question, can I remove Samsung's Store App and keep the HERE map app?
