Submission + - Google Backs down on Maps redirect (

Dupple writes: A few days ago Google blocked access to it's maps on WinPhone claiming that it "worked best" on WebKit based browsers — effectively excluding WinPhone users. Despite Google Maps working fine on Desktop versions of IE that uses the same rendering engine and users being able to spoof the user agent string on their WinPhones to gain access.

Now it appears that Google has backed down and is now allowing WinPhone users access.
