I assume what you meant is that Nokia saying Drive will be offered to other OEMs might have lost them some sales because consumers figured they'll get it anyway, but anyone who heard that statement probably also knew it's not a done deal.

sucks about nokia drive not being available on other manufacturer handsets(understandable) but at the same time people on the htc hd2 that shipped with window mobile 6.5 can run wp 7.8 with the full suite of nokia apps lol

My wife installed Navigon on her "HTC WP 8X" and loves it. I have it on my Nokia WP 822. I've mentioned this on another forum, I have researched and tried a number of GPS software programs on mobile over the years and I think Navigon is the best and is the most full featured. It has been on sale for $29 (down from $49) recently. I think it is worth many times that price. A few of the key features: It uses NAVTEQ maps. They are owned by Nokia and I think they are also the best maps. The software downloads the maps to your phone so you don't lose navigation when you lose your data connection. It has voice directions including street names and lane change guidance. There is also Speed Limit data and adjustable speeding warnings. There are traffic information functions, but I haven't investigated how that works or if it works in the USA. And more...

Problem somewhat solved by release of rebranded HERE Maps under NavTeq auspices in late Feb 2013:
Nokia Here mapping and nav available to HTC 8X and all Windows Phone 8 devices - Pocket-lint
Remaining shortfalls discussed here:
"UPGRADED" from Nokia Drive + to HERE Drive and now . . .
