Access Google Maps Mobile from Mobile Handset
Smartphone users can download Google maps mobile directly from www.google.com/gmm using their handset’s web browser.
And, coming soon, some devices are expected to ship with the application pre-configured on the device… case in point, the app will start shipping on BenQ-Siemens UMTS handsets beginning in June 2006. Google Maps is a free download that lets you find local hangouts and businesses across town or across the country – right from your phone. Please note, the app is free but carriers may charge data service rates for downloading and using the application. Google Maps works with most Java-enabled (J2ME) mobile phones offered by Cingular and Sprint, and all color BlackBerry devices regardless of carrier. At this time, Google Maps doesn’t work with Nextel, T-Mobile USA or BREW-enabled phones (e.g. Verizon, Alltel, U.S. Cellular), or Palm devices. For a list of supported devices see here.
