As we all know, our trusted mapping application for Android does not support full offline navigation (ahem. Google Maps). Coming from the Symbian world, I was shocked when I found this out. Why? It’s because the Symbian platform that so many of fanboys out there hate supports offline maps like since forever! Yes. No need for fancy internet connection. Just get your GPS enabled device and roam the city! Anyway (that leaked out my silent love for Symbian), you are reading this post for one big reason – to get offline maps on your Android-powered device. So without further ado, I introduce to you Here Maps by Nokia!
After months of tinkering Android, I made it back to Symbian. But one would ask why?
- First of all my HTC Butterfly S is dead. Yep. Dead. I dropped it accidentally on the beach and watched it die agonizingly for 6 hours. It did not die after I dropped it on the water, it died after 6 hours.
- Second, I do not have any Android phone left and I could not buy another one anytime sooner. As much as I want to buy an Android phone, I can’t. I am short of funds (because I wanted an Android phone which is capable on camera, battery, storage and multimedia *HTC Butterfly S*).
So after spending some time on Android, here are my thoughts:
This is sad. Nokia is dead. Period. Microsoft bought it and now we would never see another Nokia phone in the future.

I have been searching all over the internet to find videos demonstrating the Nokia 808 Pureview monster capabilities. This time I saw this video demosntrating its Rich Recording and awesome 41 megapixel camera for video clarity. Check it out! And oh, by the way, the music is good!
