After recent announcement of Samsung’s Tizen phone which will employ HERE Mapping services, this is a major phone announcement which will be cheered by Nokia fans and investors.
Amazon has just announced its Fire Phone which runs customized Android and boasts of 3D-touch interaction something which upcoming Windows Phone McLaren Flagship is also tipped to bring. Now good news here is, this 3D Amazon phone uses HERE Maps for its 3D location services. While we all can vouch for quality of HERE Maps, Amazon has added some interaction tricks of its own. By just peeking it allows to see the yelp reviews on the map.
This may help HERE in improving its mapping data and targeting new customers for monetization.
