Nokia HERE, will allow you to save locations to your Nokia account so you can quickly jump to them whenever you need without have to search for them every time. This feature is called Collections. You can also sync the locations across devices once you log into your Nokia account. Collections is very similar to the Starring features in Google Maps.

Nokia has also improved their 3D maps by introducing 3D view of several key locations arount the world. Similar feature like the Flyover feature in the new Apple Maps

Nokia has also added a maps editor, so now users can update street name and traffic information and the information will be added to the maps for others to see.

Nokia also acquired street view mapping company Earthming, which brings street view functionality to Nokia's Maps.

It will be available as a free download, according to the Nokia press release, and will be based on HTML 5, feature offline modes, voice-guided walking directions and build in public transit guidance.

Nokia will be bringing their HERE maps to iOS and Android as well. The iOS and Android apps will be released soon and Nokia will also be providing the maps SDK to Android OEMs so they can integrate it within their apps. The iOS version includes turn by turn directions and public transportation information and is currently pending Apple's approval. A web version for Mozilla's upcoming Firefox OS will be released next year.
