Nokia blasts Google in new Nokia Maps vs Google Maps video

Out of the blue Nokia has posted a video comparing its Maps app to Google’s own.

The video focuses on showing how the two solutions manage offline maps in a number of examples and things didn’t look too good on the Android device.

The smartphones in the test are a Nokia Lumia 920 and a Samsung Galaxy S III.

The tests involve pre-caching an area while on an active connection and then testing the search of POIs (where the Galaxy S III failed to bring any results) and getting walking/transit/driving directions.

Nokia Maps was able, through Drive, to give the user even transit navigation in offline mode, where the Galaxy S III and Google Maps just display a static map of the area.
