Google Maps Available for Windows Mobile

Google has finally released Google Maps for Windows Mobile PocketPCs & Smartphones. I’ve had Google Maps installed on my BlackBerry 7290 (my company gave me the BB – I wouldn’t buy a 7290 with my own money) and it’s pretty sweet. Not only do you get Google maps & satellite images but you also get live traffic updates. Oh, and it’s also GPS-enabled so if you have a PocketPC or Smartphone that is GPS-enabled, Google Maps will display your location on the map. The one drawback: the maps are a little slow to load when using the GSM EDGE network (aka 2.5G).

You can download and install the app directly from your mobile phone. Just go to www.google.com/gmm on your mobile phone.
