    A man using Apple Maps walks into a bar... or maybe an airport. Or is it a river? Not quite sure. One of them, anyways

    Nokia maps certainly are very good, one of the few redeeming features of symbian. I wonder if other WP8 devices will use it?

    Yes, it's been agreed a partnership with Nokia to bring maps to all WP8 devices: source

    I can see great potential with this move bringing us public transportation routes and schedules (maybe even ticketing and seat reservations?) to our maps on top of, tongue in cheek, "bicycle routes" that Nokia maps already support and some implemented rather nicely, and a lot better than competitive solution at that, too. Most (well, US and EU at least) of the transportation and logistics giants already use Oracle RDBMS back-end with ESRI ArcInfo/ArcView geo-spatial indexing/front-end and integrating additional services into a "standard model" widely in use shouldn't be too much of a problem, provided there's a competent enough investor ready to make some serious dough here. PM me if you move blue chips and need some pointers...
