Google Earth for IPhone

Mount Everest as seen in Google Earth for IPhoneStephen Shankland reports in CNET that Google has
dived headlong onto Apple's highly regarded mobile phone with a full-fledge application, a handheld version of its Google Earth geographical software.
I just downloaded it. It is awesome!!. I just took a screen capture of Mt. Everest shown on the right. Some of the coolest feature (quoting from CNET)
When the iPhone is tilted a certain angle out of horizontal, Google Earth reads data from the phone's accelerometer and adjusts your view accordingly, so you can look up into the sky.

Also handy for folks whizzing around foreign cities in buses, taxies, rental cars, or trains, the iPhone app can show your changing location on a map.
I think I have used this app way too much!! Now I have to recharge the IPhone battery :)

Here's a video from Google on how to get started with Google Earth on your IPhone (video found at Google Earth Blog)
