Google Puts Maps in the Palm of Your Hand
Google today released a mobile version of Google Maps for Palm OS Treo smart phones. The free, downloadable application provides directions, local search, live traffic updates and satellite imagery.
Google Maps for Treo offers real-time info for over 30 major U.S. cities and has been optimized for the Treo 680, 700p, 650 and 600.
Earlier this year, Google CEO Eric Schmidt said the company would be concentrating more of its efforts on mobile products. In July, Google released Google Maps for Mobile, which debuted the live traffic data feature mentioned above.
Google began testing mobile AdWords in the United States, United Kingdom and Germany in September.
