Uber is trying to buy Nokia’s Here maps, according to a report by the New York Times.
The taxi-hailing startup has allegedly put in a $3 billion – billion, with a ‘b’ – for what is largely seen as Google Maps’ largest competitor.
So. Much. Tech.
Some of the biggest names in tech are coming to TNW Conference in Amsterdam this May.
Nokia was rumored to be putting up Here for sale for a while now, with numerous bidders on the table, including Yahoo, Samsung and Tencent, aside from Uber.
The move makes sense with Uber – among several others – recently trying to distance itself from Google’s services, which seems more as a competitor every day.
