Nokia Maps coming to all Windows Phone users free of charge reports that Nokia appears to have had a small about-face regarding Nokia Maps, their mapping solution for Windows Phone. While before they have previously said they will release the app for a small fee to Marketplace, they have now revealed at a Lumia event sponsored by Nokia HK and Microsoft HK that Nokia Maps will now be free to all Windows Phone users irrespective of OEM.

The rep from Microsoft Hong Kong also confirmed this information as well.While Nokia Maps does not include GPS navigation, it still provides detailed maps in numerous locales, much more than Bing Maps do, and Nokia intends to build it up as a location-based commerce platform, making wide distribution very important. This is without doubt the right decision.
