Hi,

I think this might be interesting to some ...

Google Maps now has a version for J2ME enabled devices.
See http://www.google.pt/gmm

Cheers,

I did not check it myself, a friend tried and told its a symbian App.

Still i keep wondering how to do this smooth network pulls.
Usually a small XML pull itself was making the UI hangup!!!
But in this case Images are pulled atleast 2 at a time.

Can some one throw light on, how to make this fast Image Networking happen with j2ME. I have a slight fear that Network Pull over Multiple connections are Speed Reducers for any application that runs in mip2 over cldc1.1.
