Google Maps on your mobile phone!

Google maps on a mobile..

Mobile GMaps is a J2ME application which allows you to use Google Maps on your mobile phone! – VERY COOL !!

As a java application is works on most modern phones which have http access enabled, works well on my SE V800 using UMTS it is also pretty fast !!

You have to handle it to Google, publishing a open api to maps was a very clever move, build up a community of application builders and users to establish your market, so that when MacDonalds or pizza-hut pay for their restaurants to appear on the maps you have as many eyeballs as possible.
