Some weeks ago, we reported that Nokia is planning on selling off their HERE Maps division. Later we heard that a group of companies are in line to purchase the maps which included: Apple, Alibaba, Amazon.com,and a group of German car makers.
It appears Uber has joined the list of potential suitors and very is ready to pay a wholesome bride price. A report from The New York Times states that the company had bidden to the tune of $3 billion. The Nokia HERE maps already covers more than 80 percent market share worldwide for built-in car navigation systems, and it covers many major cities and areas worldwide, with Google Maps being the only major competition.
