Google Maps website return to Windows Phone–seems to work OK

wp_ss_20130109_0001After a huge hubbub over the weekend it seems Google has kept to their promise of making Google Maps for the web available to Windows Phone 8 users.

The website is only accessible if your phone is in mobile browser mode, else the infamous re-direct is still in place. 

In mobile mode a relatively finger-friendly but classically Android-ugly mobile mapping website, which can give walking, driving and also public transit directions is accessible, which may be a good solution for Windows Phone users to bookmark where a Microsoft or Nokia solution is not available.

Check it out at Maps.Google.com.
