Microsoft Boots Bing Maps For Nokia In Windows Phone 8

We saw this coming, and we’re glad it’s actually turned out to be true: Windows Phone 8 will replace Bing Maps with Nokia’s stellar mapping tech.

The Nokia data will be available offline — a huge perk — and includes turn by turn directions, 3D and fast transit planning. It takes a big man to admit his own son is terrible and replace that son with a beautiful Finnish daughter. Goodbye Bing, and we look forward to Nokia’s cartographical greatness.
