Hi Todd:<div>&nbsp;</div> iPhone user right now (came from treo) - and one of the most interesting and useful apps on the phone is Google Maps.<div>&nbsp;</div> EASY to get directions, get a map and most importantly find something LOCAL. <div>&nbsp;</div> I was in Torrance CA for meetings the other day and had a hankering for that California Classic - In-N-Out - so I call up a map of Torrance CA - then search for In-N-Out and there it is. With phone number, addy and a flag on the map.<div>&nbsp;</div> I've been using this app more and more when I travel to find the things I want where I happen to be.<div>&nbsp;</div> Tom O'B

Funny you should mention that. I just downloaded the Google Maps application on my Blackberry recently, and was able to get some basic directions...but it took some time, both on the download and via the user experiene. <div>&nbsp;</div> But, we're definitely headed in the right direction....my point was that it has taken WAY too long, and I attribute that mostly to the walled garden nature of so many mobile carriers. I stand by that opinion, but also expect these recent moves by Google and the carriers to change the game, bigtime. <div>&nbsp;</div> Sprint, Verizon, ATT, et al, tear down these walls!
