This article [nma.co.uk] and all others relating to the news don't seem to have much more than the headline tells us.
It's an interesting move from a Local Search point of view as I can see Microsoft using the brand to showcase additional services. We'll have to wait and see.

If Microsoft can leverage the features and offer it for free to compete with Google, it will probably be adopted well and become a strong player in online mapping .
Still, the street level 3-D locational data that Google is rolling out is another key to be equalled IMO.
