Google Maps for Windows Mobile receives an update
Android clearly has its perks when it comes to Google's line of services – it's quite transparent that the platform is treated to the latest updates for all of the popular services such as Google Maps, Buzz, and Gmail. Fortunately though, that doesn't mean that Google is going to neglect some of the long time platform partners we've seen them backing before just because a good chunk of their focus is now set on their own platform. Windows Mobile recently got treated to an update for Google Maps which brings it up to version 4.1 now and adds support for voice search capabilities. Although it may seem like a novelty thing for Android users, it'll be the first time Windows Mobile users will be getting situated with it – interestingly enough, it it connected with the hardware's call button. The updated version is claimed to work well with a wide variety of English accents so you won't have to angrily force yourself to make repetitions. Users can simply download the latest version by typing in m.google.com/maps into their phone's mobile web browser.

Got it and tried it with the voice search. It was not very accurate because it only successfully detected what I said 1 out of 4 tries. I am not sure if I was speaking too softly because I do not want ppl to look at me strangely yelling "In-N-Out" at my phone xD
