Map in your palm!
Ever thought about having a city map in your palms?
Now, it is possible to download tiny maps of various cities from all over the world on your phone or Mp3 player..
Yes, you heard it, even into your Mp3 players!
You can zoom in, pan around the tiny map to find out the nearest hotels, landmarks, bus stops etc..
There are lot of developments happening:
Mobile GMaps - you can download Yahoo Maps, Google Maps from here.
iSubwayMaps - selected cities around Europe, USA (How long we have to wait for an Indian City?)
Microsoft - download street maps for Pocket PC, Mobiles, (in Microsoft's proprietary format, as usual)
