Developer: Nokia’s Ovi Maps API’s Will be Supported in WP7 MangoJune 26, 2011 No Comments
Forum Nokia Expert Maverick, has just confirmed that not only is OVI maps coming to Windows Phone via Mango (Now Know as Nokia Maps). We are also going to get the API’s for OVI Maps as well. What does that mean? Well it means that developers will have access to develop applications using OVI maps and also will have an easier time porting their existing apps to Windows Phone 7.
This move by Microsoft also suggests that they are in this partnership for the long haul with Nokia. Which should come as no surprise to many since Stephen Elop himself said that Plan B is to make sure that Plan A (Windows Phone) succeeds.Tags: Developer, Mango, Microsoft, Nokia, Nokia Maps, Ovi Maps, Ovi Maps API, stephen elop, Windows Phone, windows phone 7, WP7News
