Google Maps goes Mobile (silently?)

Google keeps (still) surpising me: After they have introduced the personalized home page on mobile, featuring RSS aggregation, gmail and search, they seem to have (silently?) introduced google maps for mobile linked google local mobile with google search mobile.

I incidentally stumbled on it by querying "Cargo London" in google search mobile. (A Club in London) and got back a neat small page including directions, zoomable map and clickable phone number.

The pairing of google local for mobile and google search on mobiles does not only take google to a higher level of usability, it also gives your mobile phone a complete new purpose: Navigation.

I am excited what will happen, once mobile phones will have GPS/Galileo built in!
