Helsinki:- Finland's Nokia on Wednesday confirmed it had started a strategic review of its map business, HERE, after announcing a takeover of network equipment rival Alcatel-Lucent.

"The Board of Directors of Nokia believes this is the right moment to assess the position of HERE within the proposed new Nokia business," the company said in a statement, adding that the review may or may not result in any deal.
