Using Google Maps to Sell Phones

INQ Social Mobile

Mobile phone manufacturer INQ Social Mobile have used the Google Maps API to present the features and specifications of one of their mobile phones.

They have replaced the normal map tiles with what is presumably a poster for their own phone. Using the Google Maps API turns, what might alternatively have been released as a PDF file, into a truly interactive experience. Users can zoom into different areas of the poster and the poster also contains interactive map markers.

Each of the phone's features is highlighted with a map marker. If you click on any of the map markers an information window opens explaining in detail the capabilities of the phone.
