Nokia Maps App Ready to Download on Nokia Lumia Devices

When I got a Nokia Lumia 800 at Nokia World a couple of days ago, Nokia Maps was still not available for download from the Marketplace. But now the verge is reporting that Nokia Maps is available for download on Nokia Lumia devices!

Nokia Maps is not Nokia Drive; Maps will not give voice guided navigation for free to any phone, that’s a Nokia exclusive and only available to Lumia devices through the Drive application. Nokia is making Maps available to all Windows Phone devices out there though. Nokia Maps is similar to Google Maps, letting the user search thousands of points of interest in hundreds of cities around the world. It will also give directions, without voice guided navigation of course. Nokia Maps is still not available on non-Nokia devices, but those lucky enough to have a Lumia 800 or 710 can start downloading it right now!
