Internet heavyweight Google has offered powerful mobile services for some time now. Even so, the new Google Maps for Mobile takes things a step further. If you have a Palm OS or Windows Mobile smartphone, Google Maps for Mobile gives you most of the functionality of the desktop version.

If someone asked you to think of a logical pairing of a computer and a cell phone, Apple’s Macintosh and Microsoft’s Windows Mobile is probably not the first one you’d come up with. Many Mac users gravitated to Palm OS-based devices over the past decade, especially for the intuitive, flexible PIM application Palm has had almost since day one (way before Apple’s iLife suite, in fact).

Will it even work with your Macintosh? Mark/Space has your answer in The Missing Sync for Windows Mobile 3.0, and as my testing bore out, it’s a winner.
