    I disagree. BlackBerry version supports Latitude and Street View. IPhone doesn't have that yet. Its only the pinch movement that I see as iPhone doing better, and who really cares about that. Would rather have Latitude and Street View

    Never really seen the iPhone version, just briefly. What's so much better about it compared to the BB version.

    BB version is better in my opinion also. I agree with benritmeyer, latitude and street view are better than having the pinch movement in my opinion

    I have seen GM on my friend's iPhone and it doesn't really look any different than on my BB so I am not sure what you mean.

    i just want the google map to actually function when i input a designation. (it works but never at an important moment...probably just bad karma) or for it to stop saying "retrying connection".

    Definitely need to have Google Earth! Depending on where you live the satellite photos are either new or old. There really is no inbetween. I live in San Diego and the images here are from Feb 08' so that's "new enough" for me I guess. On a side note, if you use Virtual Earth on a home PC the 'Birds Eye' feature is pretty sweet. Its only a matter of time before all those cool features will be available on our BB's. I remember my first analog cell phone. Back then, text messaging was un heard of. lol. Look at the amazing things these devices do now!
