According to leaked documents obtained by PhoneScoop, Nokia is reorganizing its Navteq mapping services to provide new social-location based features.
The reorganization will focus on three areas: new social-locations apps and services designed to build an ecosystem with Microsoft, location content that enables enhanced user experiences, and location based advertising.
The changes are supposed to take place May 1 as Nokia will consolidate its current location services with Navteq. Nokia will be looking to offer its new services outside of the Nokia ecosystem as well, and will continue to sell Navteq services to its B2B partners.
