re: Nokia Kicks Apple's Map In The Apps
I have a Nokia Lumia 800 in france. The article and Nokia need to specify that they're talking about Nokia Drive, the GPS app. Which while, yes, you can use it offline to view, the offline search is piss-poor. Furthermore, it'll only go destinations manually typed in or found from search data, which curiously DOESN'T include contacts on your phone!
Also, the transit thing they compare is an entirely different app, NOT the GPS they're talking about, and it DOES require a 3G or internet connection, and the transit app sucks big time, it's just a static map of metro lines, not even buses. and the "real time" thing doesn't work in Paris.
