Nokia Maps goes 3D

Last year, Nokia introduced a version of Nokia Maps that uses WebGL to render advanced graphics instead of a browser plug-in, which meant that it wouldn't require a separate browser plug-in for 3D views.

That beta has recently seen a quiet and fun little update: a 3D stereoscopic toggle that gives you a 3D experience if you have the proper glasses to see it (actuall only Red/Cyan anaglyph glasses are supported). Google has now a very similar thing in Google Street View (press 'T' on your keyboard when in Google StreetView). No need to have a Nokia phone to test it: it is available on any WebGL browser (i.e. Chrome or Firefox).
