just installed this amazing app from the Nokia Store. Remember, you need a Nokia N9 to use this app.

From the description of the app:
Which cities you have covered now? London, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Fort Lauderdale, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Louisville, Miami, New York, Newark-Jersey City, Orlando, Philadelphia, Portland, San Francisco, San Jose and Seattle.

Why would Nokia invest so much money into an application like this one? I am quite sure that Nokia is preparing software to finally make a stand in the US market with the new Windows Phone 8 phones (Lumia 920, Lumia 800). So right now Nokia N9 (Meego, linux based OS) are the guinea pigs for this marvelous app.

To me the most amazing feature is that you can SEE your navigation route in the panorama view. Well, for Google Streetview users this is nothing new. Google maps allows you to see your blue route when in street view mode.

You can also prefetch the panaromas you are going to need beforehand so save data costs.

What is a new feature is that you see shop/business signs as an overlay in the panoramas, of course clickable to get more info.

As customers of smartphones there have never been better times. The tech giants are battling, that is always the best for us buyers.

That's very cool, unfortunately the only "big" city near us that my son would use is Albany, NY ...

I just used it last night to visit Paris. Places that I know there. And it was quite fun actually. I am sure >

You get most of the features with Google Street View Timothy. And I am 100% sure that >>>
