Nokia appears to have succeeded in its attempts to drum up interest in HERE, with news reports suggesting that Uber, Facebook, three German automotive makers and a group of venture capitalists are prepared to or have already submitted a bid for the location and mapping unit. The New York Times wrote last week that Uber, a ride-sharing service based in San Francisco, has tabled an offer of 2.7 billion euros for HERE.
