This is what Nokia Maps can let you do

  1. You can see where you are on the map, thanks to HTML5 support for positioning
  2. You can find addresses, businesses and other places of interest, anywhere in the world
  3. You can get to know the places: all the essential information about a place are presented on one page (pictures, user reviews, popular travel guides description, contact information)
  4. You can plan the fastest route to your destination by car or on foot
  5. You can see where the public transport lines go, and where the stops are
  6. You can share your favourite places with your friends via SMS, email, Facebook or Twitter

All you got to do is to simply visit http://maps.nokia.com and lo, you will have a fully functional browser map.

Though the service is still in beta, but it surely looks promising.

PS: you can only use these maps on iPhone, iPod touch and iPad with iOS4 or Android phones with Android 2.2 and Android 2.3.

Do let us know how you felt about the new maps…!!!
