More and more smartphone manufacturers have been moving towards on-screen buttons, with Google really pushing for it over the physical button alternative. However, there are still a few OEMs (we're looking at you, Samsung) that have preferred to keep things a bit more traditional. Tell us which way you prefer and why.
OpenMobileMaps for Windows Mobile – Major Update
XDA member Cipher presents a major update of OpenMobileMaps for your Windows Mobile device. This application is similar to GoogleMaps but it’s relying on OpenStreetMap.org and it has GPS support as well as GSM triangulation (if no GPS device is present). The latest version features a new button to force re-download of already viewed tiles, word wrapping for GraphicText, show arrow with direction when moving instead of pin, added HD2 multitouch feature (pinch-to-zoom), bookmark functionality, a re-designed the context menu, and added reverse geocoding, amongst many more.
If you like this app please leave some feedback to the developer.

I wrote an application similar to GoogleMaps but it’s relying on OpenStreetMap.org.
It’s finger friendly and showing the map on fullscreen.
GPS support and GSM triangulation (if no GPS device is present) is built in.

While there are frequent unexplained changes and pushes to Google's AOSP repositories, an interesting-looking new branch has been pushed out recently, called "master-soong".
