Google Android in back of the line for Google Maps Mobile

Here's an article about the latest Mobile version of Google Maps, version 3.2. Notice how Google caters to the big platforms for Mobile: BlackBerry, Java ME, Symbian, and Windows Mobile. And, as should be, Android is last in line when Google thinks about how it can monetize their Mobile Apps, such as Google Maps Mobile. The sheer volume of deployments for each platform means that proper prioritization puts Android last.

Here's a quote:

 The latest version doesn't offer
 major changes, but it is expected 
 to improve playback and add 
 functions.

 While these operating systems are 
 rivals to the Google-backed Android 
 OS, the search giant benefits nearly 
 any time consumers go online with 
 handsets. Google has multiple 
 apps for BlackBerry, Java ME, 
 Symbian, and Windows Mobile, and 
 it sometimes will bring new features 
 like voice-driven search to the 
 iPhone before it hits Android. 
Good to see that Google Mobile Maps can put Android in proper perspective.
