This via Microsoft (Bing) – Building on the existing strategic partnership between Microsoft and Nokia, today we’re announcing that Bing Maps is now using Nokia backend services for Traffic and Geocoding. With the goal of helping get places faster and get more done, here are the key things Nokia services will do for Bing Maps:
· Bing Maps will now offer Nokia-powered traffic results in 24 countries.
· Improved and expanded traffic information in the US, adding traffic for side streets in addition to freeways.
· Bing Maps will begin using Nokia geocoding countries, offering improved routing and directions.
