Google Maps for Mobile

Google Maps for Mobile now has Real-time traffic reporting! How cool is that.

Wish they’ll soon include Manila, which IMO has one of the worst traffic congestions in the world. This will also be a big hit in cramped cities as Caracas, Bangkok and Taipei.

However, GMM is not meant to work like GPS (Global Positioning System), so don’t use this app while driving. Simply check what needs to be checked, get in the car, put the mobile phone away and drive safely.

Do I dare ask — Is this the precursor to Google’s foray into the GPS arena?
