Indoor Bing maps on Mango

Another awesome feature (should it be gradually made available for users globally) that has come to light is indoor Bing maps on Mango. Thinking about going to a nearby shopping mall, but can't be bothered to visit the website and check the map? Soon your Windows Phone might be able to lend you a helping hand.

Mango will feature Bing indoor maps so users can view the insides of locations and buildings - stores in a shopping mall for example. Unfortunately this is still in apparent early stages, but I can't think of another smartphone off the top of my head that features this unique functionality. There's also a button in the top-right corner that allows you to switch between levels in multi-story buildings/locations.

Here are some indoor maps that Microsoft has added to the desktop version of Bing maps. What do you guys think of this feature? Neat, eh?
