Google is to unveil the "next dimension" of Google Maps on Wednesday, 6 June, just days ahead of Apple's WWDC conference where it is widely expected it will announce that it's dropping Google Maps from the iPhone and iPad.

According to the US journalists who have been invited to the event, Google's Brian McCleendon, VP of Google Maps and Google Earth, will demo some of the newest technology and provide a sneak peek at upcoming features "that that will help people get where they want to go – both physically and virtually".

Whether Apple does end up opting for its own mapping solution over Google's mapping data is yet to be seen, however for many sites it seems it is sometimes easy to forget that people use other phones and other operating systems.

Android users, we are sure, will be waiting with excitement to learn what new features will be announced and when they will be coming to their phone.

We will keep you posted.
