Nokia and Oracle have joined forces on mapping, with details of the deal to be announced at the Oracle OpenWorld conference on Monday.
To differentiate its smartphones from the competition, Nokia is betting big on location as well as imaging technology. Oracle is expected to add Nokia’s mapping technology to its applications.
Part of Nokia’s location strategy is signing deals for the use of its Navteq mapping technology with as many companies as possible. A spokeswoman at Nokia confirmed the deal with Oracle, but declined to go into detail before the official announcement.
