Google Maps for Mobile has been released and I thought I would give you a quick glimpse at what it's like and how it looked on my PDA phone. If you have a recent high-end phone or PDA device, then simply browse over to http://www.google.com.au/gmm/index.html this page (on your PC) and follow the instructions. What it involves is pointing your phone/PDA at http://www.google.com/gmm using either GPRS (Charges apply!) or WiFi and then installing a small java applet. Once installed you have the full range of google maps capabilities including satellite views, location searches and traffic reports (depending on location and availability). You can pan and zoom on any location across the globe just like you would on maps.google.com. I couldn't quite get the business or directions function to work, but maybe that was just me or because I using Australian locations? Here's a few screenshots of the applet running on my phone.
