When I got an HTC WP 8X to test I confused to say the least by lack of availability of Nokia Drive. I thought I remembered reading somewhere that Nokia was going to provide maps for all Windows Phone 8 devices as part of their agreement with Microsoft however I couldn't download the app to 8X.  Well it seems that if I would test that same 8X today I couidl download Nokia Drive  to it.  Nokia has announced that it is now available for all WP8 devices in the US, UK, and Canada.

Why is this such a big deal you say?  Nokia Drive is the ONLY fully offline maps on Windows Phone plus it has turn by turn navigation.  As I was looking around the web for proof of this I found this picture from Nokia Innovation of an HTC 8X with Nokia Drive+ loaded onto it.

If you have a non Lumia Windows Phone 8 device I suggest you download Nokia Drive to it.   You will thank me later when your "lost" and can find your way home easily.

What does really differenciate any WP8 device from a Lumia from now on?
Nice move MS... again!!!
Next move: Nokia becoming MS's service provider. In the meantime MS learn how to improve their Bing maps, until 2016, when Nokia will be dumped in the trash.
