Uber wants Nokia's HERE business

Taxi services provider Uber is making a bid for Nokia's HERE business.
Uber is positioning itself more and more as a logistics company, “delivering” people and things from point A to B in a timely matter – which means that the company is depending on map services (Google's Maps to be precise), according to a report in the New York Times.

However, the Uber has made an offer for Nokia's HERE business – which is a competitor to Google Maps – of USD 3 billion, three people with insight of the offer told the New York Times.

Nokia's is as you might know reviewing strategic options for HERE, which may well include a potential sale of the business.

However, Uber is competing against a consortium of automakers (BMW, Audi and Mercedes-Benz) which have also expressed interest in Nokia's mapping unit, the report concludes.
