Google Upgrades My Location, Mobilizes StreetView
Google has upgraded Google Maps for Mobile with more precise location awareness (My Location) and now brought StreetView into mobile. The new version of Google Maps (for BlackBerry and most Java phones) provides an option to see the StreetView image of the selected address or business. It also offers walking directions, in addition to standard driving directions.
Here are a couple of screenshots:
Here’s a video that demonstrates StreetView in action on a mobile device:
StreetView will also be available on Android phones. The first one — a T-Mobile HTC-made device — is supposed to be formally announced next week.
