As good as Nokia Maps are, I personally don't care that much about Google Maps. It's not that great of an experience in the browser anyway.

what a joke, who needs to type maps.google.com on a phone browser? I never did that thing on Android and I don't need it on WP, looking for places using bing or google search on any mobile browser will open your default maps app.

Everybody get their own domain name! Sooner or later the war of these titans will reach our door. Better have our own domain name and switch to other providers in case they will ask us to pay anything. In my opinion, like for google apps, Google is using bait and switch techniques.
Anyway, i don't miss google maps. Only if someone sends me a link referring to google maps location otherwise for everything else Nokia Maps is much better!

Links, urls, and similar are bad practices, and not something usable in the near future if xyz company changes protocols.
encourage your friends to use savable data in the future.

Sorry but sometimes you guys are slow to report certain news and we deserve the right to discuss them as they happen.
If a competing site reports news that has yet to be reported here, I don't see the big deal in using them as a source in the interim (which is what happened here) to get the debate rolling.

Having used linux for years, I'm very accustomed to this kind of stonewalling, and shopped for brands/softwares/services that provided me with access, as needed. Sometimes, this meant using a different os for very specific tasks, via emulation.
My (very limited, possibly wrong) understanding is that limiting access to all -except- ones own platform is where antitrust comes in.
This looks to me to be a very lucrative market (a gift from google?) someone could exploit on the wp platform.... maybe it will happen ?

Well this is the last straw for me. This morning, I closed my Google+ Profile, my normal Google profile and all associated data I possibly could with all the other google services without completely closing my account. The only reason I didn't cancel my entire account is YouTube. I switched my default search engines to Bing and when my phone gets back from warranty, the gMaps pro app and google search will not be reinstalled.
