Sell old mobile phone and go global with Google Street View
1 October 2010 — 7:11 PM
Consumers who sell an old mobile phone and splash out on one of the latest smartphones can now enjoy the benefits of Google Street View across the world.
The search engine's unique offering of images from roads now covers all seven continents, author of the Google Mobile Blog Michael Siliski states.
This is the result of the company adding shots from Brazil, Ireland and Half Moon Island in Antarctica to its service for phone users.
Mr Siliski suggests this means owners of a quality handset can now explore every corner of the globe from the palm of their hand.
To do this people must visit the Google Maps feature and choose the Street View option, which will only be available if images of the area in question have been uploaded.
One device users may wish to upgrade to in order to enjoy the technology is Google's own Nexus One, which is an alternative to other popular models such as the iPhone 4 and HTC Desire.
