Sure, most have the world has been utilizing Google’s free turn-by-turn navigation via Google Maps for years, but until now users south of the border have been left out of the action. Well, that’s changing today as Google has announced that Google Maps Navigation is now available to users in Mexico, albeit in beta.

Much like its other-wordly counterparts, the Google Maps app features full turn-by-turn directions, directions by point of interest, Spanish-language voice search, voice playback and even real-time traffic updates.

Users will need to be running at least Android 2.2 Froyo to take full advantage of Google’s new application. Those who fit the bill can head to the Play Store to find the official download.

We here in the states love Verizon’s Droid line.. it’s one of our favorites. But, what about everyone else? Well, it looks like Motorola is on their way to handling the issue of stateside exclusivity, as they have announced the first Droid ever to come to Mexico: the Motoroi X. It has, basically, the same specs as the Droid X, but no Verizon name to be seen. The device will be coming to Mexican carrier Lusacell in Q4 of 2010 with 3G and wi-fi hotspot capabilities, and will ship with the Motoblur version found in its Droid X cousin. The phone will also be running Android 2.2 Froyo. Be sure to hit the break for the translated press release, and hit up the source link for the original presser in Spanish.
