Nokia Maps and Bing Maps Tie the Visual Knot
Nokia today announced that it and partner Microsoft has refreshed the appearance of Nokia maps to unify the user interface of both the Nokia Maps and Bing Maps systems. Nokia says that the overarching goal of the redesign was to make the maps easier to understand, yet still provide detail and context for what's in view. Nokia said that it has reduced the amount of clutter and icons visible on the maps, as well as toned down its color palette. Nokia explains that maps that are more contextual when expanded, and more detailed when zoomed in. The new version of Nokia Maps will be rolled out gradually, first to maps.nokia.com, to m.maps.nokia.com (the mobile browser version for iOS and Android), and to the Nokia Maps app for Lumia smartphones. The availability of Nokia Maps will expand to other platforms and products from there.
