Nokia today announced "HERE" as its new brand for mapping and location services and apps. Currently available through Microsoft platforms such as Windows Phone, Nokia will now be expanding with an app for Apple's iOS and an SDK for Android manufacturers to integrate the HERE map service into Android-based phones.

The HERE app for iOS is expected to be available in Apple's App Store in the coming weeks.
