  1. I don’t have an iPhone but I love gmaps on my TMO 8700g blackberry. it is the ultimate road trip device and great if you drive around for work a lot and need a map for the next stop. Ohh, plus traffic updates is awesome for beating the LA traffic.

  4. Om,
    More than the current usage of Google Maps can be achieved if Apple releases a GPS driven integration with Google maps (via Bluetooth). Windows live already does this on WM device, and totally removes dependency on another GPS device.

  6. Google Maps works on my Cingular 8125. The only downside is it’s slow on the Edge network and when traveling you’re more likely to want to use it when you’re lost in a place with no data service. So on a WM phone with GPS it would be great, but on the technologically handicapped iphone it would be useless half the time.

    I’m a runner; I’d love to integrate an iPhone with the Gmap pedometer (which calculates distance for a route you specify).

  8. The hold back for me on YouTube is that I hate the search. You can’t tell what date shows are published with out looking at the details page and there is no way to sort the results.

    There is also no way to subscribe, or sync your desktop user profile with the phone app.

    I’d rather grab video podcaste and watch those.

  9. There’s not likely to be a move in YouTube numbers because mobile views are swamped by desktop views. Mobile maps is an application only for mobile, where a new device like the iPhone can have a significant effect. No mobile device could make even a dent in the enormous number of videos already watched on YouTube daily.
