yet available for Windows Mobile smartphones, today Google launched a new
version of Google Maps for Mobile with the same street-level imagery as
available available on desktop.
Furthermore, Google's new Maps for Mobile features walking directions (beta)
which I wrote about some weeks ago and which Google recently recently
launched on desktop. Last but not least, Google Maps Mobile also features to
help you search for and get to businesses and locations. You can now read
business reviews, so you'll know if it's actually worth driving across town to
that store. Finally, Google hopes we'll notice significant improvements in
search speed with this version, as well as better location accuracy in all
versions thanks to this week's My Location update.
Unfortunately, the newest Google Maps for Mobile is yet available for BlackBerry and Java-enabled phones
only. However, Google promised they are working on bringing all these new
features to other platforms as well, so a new Windows Mobile client shouldn't
takes too long anymore.
