Video: Ericsson Labs shows 3D Maps on XPERIA X10

With Rogers releasing the upcoming Android-powered Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 shortly… in the meantime Ericsson Labs uploaded a very quick video demo of a new 3D Landscape API. It’s pretty cool and images load fast, but unfortunately only Stockholm has the pleasure of having this for their city… more will be added at a later date.

They state that “the SDK libraries uses unique maps in 3D and fast methods for rendering the maps which makes it possible to show realtime 3D maps in high quality… the maps for the SDKs are downloaded from a backend server and buffered in the mobile as needed”. You can bet Google Maps will be on this technology soon, check it out below:
