Head of innovation for Nokia’s Location and Commerce business, Hans Peter Brondmo, said, “We’re basically the world’s largest mapping company.”
This is based on the company’s mapping services available in 176 million devices in 196 countries in 50 various languages. It can be seen in a number of Yahoo services. It also feeds information to Microsoft’s Bing Maps.
Nokia Maps, however, faces its biggest competition with the next dimension of Google Maps as well as the iOS 6’s new 3D maps. Nokia has plans to rival these services as well. Brondmo said that its maps would be able to answer “every question with a ‘where’ in it”.
