Pre-order: Surface Laptop | NEW Surface Pro

LiveSight

In the future, Nokia will be a services company instead of making phones. Of course, that’s glossing over the fact that their hardware division will live on, just under the Microsoft banner. It’s also important because their HERE mapping technology is quite impressive.

Nokia has now released three videos highlighting some of the core HERE technologies, many of which you Lumia owners will be familiar with. LiveSight, My Commute and Transit are all standard apps on Lumia Windows Phones, though we bet that the company will be extending them to other platforms in the future.

Back at Mobile World Congress, we showed a new app that was being developed by Nokia called JobLens. If you thing that sounds a lot like City Lens, their other famous app, you’d be right and the two share more than just a common name.

JobLens is a new project from Nokia that where they team up with LinkedIn, Indeed, Salary.com and Zillow to help you find jobs immediately around your current location. The app ties into your LinkedIn account (or Facebook, Twitter, etc.) to create a “network” and then finds jobs that may be of interest to you.

Nokia is planning on renaming their Nokia Maps to HERE Maps on their Lumia line of Windows Phone. The announcement will coincide with the revealing of the Lumia 520 and Lumia 720 Windows Phone tomorrow, here in Barcelona, during their 8:30am (local time) press conference.

The HERE Maps will be an update for existing Nokia Maps users and will start at version 3.2. The exact release of the software and any enhancements to the mapping system is currently unknown, though 3D detailed mapping via earthmine (acquired by Nokia) and routing via LiveSight may be on the list.
