Google have released an update to the mobile version of Google Maps (the conveniently titled Google Maps For Mobile) that brings Street View to Symbian (e.g. Nokia) and Windows Mobile phones for the first time.
BlackBerr, iPhone and Android users have had this for a while but with the release of version 2.3 their populist mass-market rivals can experience the only-slightly-sinister street mapping panopticon that is Google Street View.
The UK isn’t covered yet, due to some wussy concerns about ‘privacy’ and ‘the law’, but Google’s camera mobiles have successfully mapped major cities in the USA, Australia, France, Italy & Spain.
If you have never used it on the desktop, Street View adds a 3D ‘street level’ to some city maps that lets you see panoramic photos of the actual locations and move around in a sort of ‘virtual reality’ view. Dead useful when you have to meet someone and want to check out local landmarks.
