Today Google announced that it has updated the BlackBerry and Java versions of its Google Maps Mobile application to include support for the company's Street View images. Street View allows users to look at actual ground level photos of addresses that they find on Google Maps. Street View only has a small portion of the country covered, mostly in large metropolitan areas like New York City, but can give users much more visual information to go on than what the current Satellite View is capable of offering.

So far Google Maps for other platforms, such as Windows Mobile and S60, has not been updated to include Street View.

You can download the new version of Google Maps by pointing your phone's browser to http://www.google.com/gmm.
