Nokia Drive not for sharing

A tweet this morning from Nokia's Communications Director Mark Squires has put paid to a rumour that the Nokia Drive sat nav app might appear on other Windows Phone 7 handsets.


'Folks Nokia Drive will not be made available for other WP OEMs. It comes on our Lumia range and there are currently no plans to change that.'

As we reported in our review of the Lumia 800, Nokia Drive is a proper, fully-functioning sat nav app with free maps and voice directions.


The quashing of the rumour by Nokia is bad news for other Windows users feeling let down by the disappointing offering from Bing Maps.


We can't help but think that Nokia might be missing a trick by not licensing the software for other handset manufacturers or at least making it available as a paid-for app via the WP Marketplace.
