The arms race between Google Maps and Live Search continues. The latest salvo comes from Google, who have finally given Windows Mobile a feature they released awhile ago on BlackBerry: directions for mass transit. Check the video above to get a feel for it (yes, sadly, demoed on a BlackBerry). They have around 50ish metro areas covered (see a list here), limited currently to the cities that are “forward thinking” enough to bother getting their data to Google in the right format. In other words, the list is California-heavy and has some startling omissions like New York City(!) and some strange bits like including Duluth, MN but not the Twin Cities. Fortunately, more cities are coming.
