Not 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.

Cheers ~ Arne

I hope they will release the WM version soon. Please keep us updated.

Shame on Google for serving BB and Java first and neglecting WM!
Shame on them!
