Google Maps Navigation on Android 2.0 Kicks Ass

Its news like this that really excites me and makes me proud of being part of the mobile community. It turns out Verizon/Moto's upcoming Droid phone will be the first to feature Android 2.0 OS update which will provide a full on GPS navigation with 3D street view as you get closer to your destination. This is huge because telecoms usually like to offer turn by turn GPS as a feature but this one seems to be purely based on the smartphone's capabilities and data plan. These are the kind of warm and fuzzy feeling I used to get when learning about new iPhone features... could I be more certain that Android is going win the mobile war?
