Mobile Phones and Offline Mapping

OffMaps Downloads Maps for Offline On-the-Go Access.

I don’t know what kind of phone I’m going to get next, but I would prefer it to have the capability to store and use offline maps.  Maemo Mapper, which does just this, is one of the reasons I like my Nokia N800 so much.  I can do it on my Blackberry, too, which is nice, but it isn’t nearly as user friendly (for me at least).  Commenters in the linked article also mention an application called CityMaps2Go that may be worth looking into.
