    We all know that Bing is the default search provider for the Touchpad, however the google maps support is still available. Which means we might have Google maps along with Bing.

    See the below screenshot

    Interesting. I tried not to read too much into the screen shots as I imagine it is probably an incredibly early build. I think it is more for testing the framework and apps as opposed to using the OS.

    If you have a complaint/request relating to webOS please use the Feedback & Feature Requests Form at the official site.

    I think it is the link to the Bing Maps App. Since the emulator is still in beta, there are a lot of things yet to be finished. And maybe one of these unfinished things is the Maps app, where they haven't completely renamed the Just Type link from Google Maps to Bing Maps.

    Because Google has never developed a maps app for any other platform other than their own. What would lead anyone to believe they'd spend the time/money to make one for webOS?

    They've provided all the necessary API's to allow HP|Palm develop a native client in-house, just like Apple and others have.

    Because the Google Maps app we have now was made by Palm and totally sucks. Google has no interest in making Android's competition look better than it already does.
