Every Windows Phone 8 Device Will Get Nokia's Stellar Navigation Software (Update: Starting Now)

Nokia has announced that it is to share its Drive, Maps and Transit apps with other Windows Phone handsets. Under the new name Here, users of non-Nokia handsets will finally be able to use the Finns' excellent navigation software.

However, Nokia does point out that the "first and best" versions of the software will remain on its own smartphones, and it's not clear when the roll-out will happen. But that's not too much of an issue: if you're using Windows Phone, any leftovers from Nokia's great navigation software are worth grabbing.


Elsewhere, though, Nokia is keeping for itself. Today it also announced that all its camera apps—Glam Me, Cinemagraph, burst-mode image corrector—will only feature on the Lumia.

Update: The Here app is available for download now.
