Google Maps updated to 5.5 and crosses 200 million mobile users
The last change is to the public transit Place pages, which adds information about upcoming departures for lines at that station. Google Maps transit information is a wonderful resource available in 440 cities worldwide, and this update makes it easier to find information from a nearby station without having to search for directions.
You can grab the update in the Android Market.

If Apple ever did make maps expect them to be highly restricted by only being updated through itunes and don't expect them to be free. A 7.99 purchase price or something similar would be applied as in keeping with Apples money milking policy.
