Google Maps 5.0 Demoed on the Nexus S

Google [GOOG] has posted a video demo of Google Maps 5.0 running on the Android 2.3 Nexus S smartphone.

The new version of Maps brings a few new features to Android devices which includes the ability to navigate in 3D around various cities around the world. The video embedded below shows how that works and what kind of frame rate is achieve which I have to say is quite impressive.

You can see the 3D maps effect around the 2:30 mark although it’s worth watching the whole thing to see what else has been included in this new version.
