Sometime ago, we hinted that Nokia could be gearing up to sell it’s HERE Maps division. It appears buyers are already queuing up to purchase the location-based service.
Asides Apple, some other firms have been approached. They include: Alibaba, Amazon.com Inc, Facebook Inc, and a group of German car makers. The Finnish company is expecting bids in excesses of $3.2 billion, and these are expected to start arriving soon.
It would really make sense if Apple succeeds, because their Maps service is nothing to write home about.
