Nokia Maps now available for IOS and Android on HTML5

The Finnish firm has developed a web version of its mapping service, available for all platforms.

The mapping services IOS and Android will now have a new competitor in weight and is not exactly a new app available in their stores. Finland's Nokia has decided to make the online version of Nokia Maps on HTML5 to be available in most mobile devices that support this platform.

To use the service, simply enter the browser mobile, which offers features like geolocation Foursquare, download country maps, voice guidance and marking of routes, among others.

While the new development is available for all Nokia mobile platforms, but those Android users who want to use must have version 2.3 (Gingerbread) operating system or higher. WebOS users Blackberry HP and having the OS version 7.0 as Mimino also may enter the map service.

Nokia Maps is one of the major bets by the Finnish company. After the agreement with Microsoft, the company has restructured the bulk of its services, including Ovi Share, which has been closed. The online mapping seems to be one of the workhorses of the firm headed by Stephen Elop, remains to be seen whether he can make a place in a territory dominated by Google comfortably.
