We have two different mapping announcements, one from Bing and one from Google. Bing's is the most interesting, in that they launched WorldWide Telescope data in their mapping software. Google updated their Google Maps for Android app to enable search 'n swipe, a latitude widget, and other changes.

Bing's telescope feature works by going to Bing Maps, and simply panning the maps up to the sky. Here is a screen capture:
