5 days before the WWDC keynote where Apple will boot Google Maps from the iPhone and unveil their own cool new 3D mapping technology, Google Maps is holding an event to discuss “the next dimension of Google Maps”. Coincidence, I’m sure.
Note that Google is saying they will “provide a sneak peek at upcoming features” — in other words, they aren’t done yet, but they wanted to get them out there before the blowback from WWDC.
Also worth noting, I have June 6 marked down as the day of Eric Schmidt’s “six months from now” prediction. That is, on this day, Schmidt promised that more developers would be working on Android apps first instead of iOS ones. Obviously, this event isn’t related, but a nice distraction from the complete and utter lack of reality.
