Finally, after Google released Google Maps for Mobile with Street View before for Android, BlackBerry and iPhone, the Google team finally released Google Maps Mobile 2.3 for Windows Mobile and Nokia S60 as well. Street View lets you access street level imagery to help orient yourself when looking for places, businesses, or getting directions. Say you're going to meet with friends at an unfamiliar restaurant. Now you can search for it in Google Maps for mobile, click on "Street View", and see what the place and surrounding area look like. Similarly, say you need to get to a shop in a part of town you don't know. Find it using your phone, get directions to it, and see how to get there with full-screen panorama images of every step along the way.

However, even more important and useful in addition to Street View is the fact that the new version of Google Maps Mobile finally also also features walking directions (in addition to driving and public transit) which I wrote about before. Last but not least, Google overhauled the entire user interface to make the app more responsive and easier to use.

Google Maps for Mobile 2.3 is now available for download for Windows Mobile Professional and Standard smartphones from Google's Google Map Mobile site.

Cheers ~ Arne
