This just in...Google Maps for the iPhone

Good news (?) for those of you up iPhone creek without a satisfying map app….apparently Google’s iPhone map app has been distributed to a limited number of field testers.  Speculation is that it will soon be submitted for approval.   Wondering…

  • Will there be integration with voice, and how will it be executed?  The voice integration of Apple Maps isn’t without flaws, but it’s none-the-less an impressive advance.  Any chatter about it was largely drowned out amid the din and thunder over the famously flubbed rollout of the undercooked Apple Maps. 
  • Likelihood of approval?  Squint and sign.  Prediction = approval.
