It’s no secret that Nokia plans to sell off its Here maps business. But the question of who will end up buying it is a big one. So far, it’s been suggested that potential buyers run the gamut from German automakers, all the way to social networking companies like Facebook. Now The New York Times reports that Uber has thrown its hat in the ring with a bid to snap up Here for up to $3 billion. That would be a hefty sum for the division, but just a fraction of the $8.1 billion it paid for Navteq (Here’s original company name) in 2007, which would be about $9.4 billion in today’s dollars.
