Nokia today announced an update for the HERE maps solution on both Windows Phone and Android, which should be hitting handsets from today. The update includes support for turn-by-turn navigation in new regions (and improvements to the feature itself in supported markets), as well as improved map coverage in others markets. But wait, there's more.

Update: The HERE team has posted an official update on this stating: "we have noticed some discussions in the blogosphere about HERE on Windows Phone. We want to clarify that we are committed to providing great products and consumer experiences for Windows based phones. We will continue to support our HERE apps to ensure that they will be compatible with future versions of Windows."

Original story: It looks like Microsoft is taking over development of HERE Maps for Windows Phone from Nokia. The change comes after it was revealed that Nokia was looking to develop the client from the ground up for Android and iOS platforms.

HERE Maps is the solid mapping experience from Nokia, which was only available on the Lumia 2520 when it came to Windows Phone 8.1 tablets and PCs. We recently covered plans for the app to be pushed out to all hardware, ending the Lumia 2520 exclusivity. Nokia has today made the popular solution available for all consumers to download, no matter which Windows device you're using.

Nokia releases its financial report for Q4 2013, showing a decline in Lumia sales before passing the baton to Microsoft

While both the media and consumers wait patiently for Microsoft to inevitably absorb Nokia's devices and services division, the Finnish company today published its Q4 2013 financial report. This latest report paints a rather bleak image of its Lumia family of Windows Phones. Simply put, Nokia (and Microsoft as both the operating system developer and financial partner) had a bad period to close off 2013. That said, it's not all negative and the Nokia we should see after the Microsoft deal will be a profitable company.
