In another effort to further combine mobile and local search domains Google released experimental service (and US only) where you can use voice to search Google maps. Currently in only supports BlackBerry's 8110, 8120 and 8130 models. I haven't tried it so I don't know how well it works.

I'm amazed at the things Google experiments with. This new service joins GOOG-411 [google.com] as another voice-activated search.

(It looks like this new Maps voice Search page intended to link to GOOG-411 at the bottom, but currently there's an error in teh link, so the page just links to itself.)
