Yahoo! India announced the launch of Maps Beta. Wait a Minute, if you have ever used Google Maps in the US, then you can skip reading the next part as Yahoo! India maps needs a lot of work.

I tried testing the service since they have launched it for polluted Bangalore / Bengalooru City. I tried finding 5th Block of Jaynagar by various queries but the system was not able to find it. But you can see Block 5 right there in the map which I located by scrolling manually. Their is some useful information such as Hospitals, Shopping Complex, ATM etc. I expect Yahoo! or other Maps provider to integrate Yellow Pages very soon.

IMHO, it is a hasty launch on behalf of Yahoo!. I find Google Earth much more tempting to use.
