Despite Microsoft’s benign neglect, Windows Mobile is still getting some attention from an unexpected source.

Google Maps for Windows Phone has seen an update to version 4.1, and ads a pretty nice feature. Version 4.1 ads voice search capabilities, interestingly tied to the hardware call button.

The app claims to work with a wide range of English accents, including American, British, Indian, Australian, & New Zealand English and also Mandarin.

The update can be downloaded at using your mobile browser.
