Not many people know what his idea is right now. But his site has been covered by Digg, and one digger has done some rooting around in the internet archives and found what he thinks might be the big idea.

Google Maps for Mobile App

February 1, 2007

Google today released Google Maps for Mobile as a Windows Mobile standalone application, not a Java midlet. It has GPS support, which is very cool for those with a GPS-enabled phone.

So far, in addition to this release, Google has released Google Maps as a Java midlet, and a Gmail app as a Java midlet. All of Google’s other mobile offerings are in the form of mobile-friendly websites, such as Google Reader Mobile and Google News Mobile.

I hope Google’s mobile development keeps picking up. I still haven’t been able to find a mobile RSS reader that synchronizes well for offline reading support.
