Amazon.com has acquired 3D mapping company UpNext for an undisclosed amount of money. Amazon will likely utilize UpNext to develop a mapping application for their future tablets. UpNext’s mapping software is not as sophisticated as the new mapping application that will be built into Apple’s iOS 6 operating system, but it certainly is better than the standard 2D-mapping app.
