Nokia Maps to launch for free on iOS

Nokia press release:

To further extend its location services, Nokia is launching a maps application for iOS under the HERE brand. Based on HTML5, it will include offline capabilities, voice-guided walk navigation, and public transport directions. The application is scheduled to be available for free download from Apple’s App Store in the coming weeks.

Great news. However, I’m concerned about basing the app on HTML5. Some have tried and failed.
