From Google Mobile Blog this week

Today we're launching a new version of Google Maps for mobile with the same street-level imagery available on desktop. Wondering if the restaurant in your search results is the one you're thinking of? Just click "Street View" after your search to see the storefront. Unsure about a complicated intersection in your directions? Use Street View to see a photo, so there's no mistaking your turn. You can also launch Street View from any address where we have photography, or simply by clicking on the map and selecting "Street View". You can browse Street View overlaid on the map or in full screen, rotate your view to see more of your surroundings, and move along the street.

I would think all of the ones they support:

BlackBerry
Java
Windows Mobile (download binary)
Symbian S60 3rd Edition (most new Nokia smartphones) (download binary)
Palm OS (download binary)
iPhone (pre-installed)

I loaded it on my KRZR K1m (Bell Mobility). Though I hate how Google refuses to allow me to install it directly from them (they say the K1m isn't supported - which may be true for Verizon).

It works great and the street view is neat.

Works great on htc touch diamond. Not sure if its possible but the GPS locks in much faster with this version.. could be a fluke.

I like how it actually shows the bus stop right infront of my house

Installed on my HTC touch and the Street View is pretty cool but there is no GPS functionality. This install was the java version since Google doesn't have (or I couldn't find it) a Windows Mobile version yet. Non Street View Google Maps does have full GPS functionality on my phone.
