There's a new version of mobile Java map viewer 8Motions. 8Motions shows maps and satellite images from MSN, Google, Yahoo, and Ask.com. It's designed for geotagging: it can display FON Wi-Fi access points and geotagged photos and notes from Flickr and Twitter on the maps, and you can upload your own so others can see them. It has traffic info, and WikiMapia is integrated too.
8Motions asks you to register and log in before it lets you download its program, but you can also get it from Mobile Castle without having to register with 8Motions.
