<<I received a tip from a New York retailer named Oh Nuts, that Google came to their store to take pictures for a new Google Maps product named “Google Store Views.” I was told that they took pictures of the inside of the store, every 6 feet, in all directions. They also took pictures of products.>>

In the Netherlands a Store View like service is already available called www.winkelspotter.nl. Greg Sterling mentioned the website www.everyscape.com.

That sounds suspicious...

I'd think that someone could've been posing as a Googler to do that, because it seems like something Google might do.

Yes that crossed my mind too!. Let's wait if Google respond on this.

<<A Google spokesperson sent us the following statement:

We are always experimenting with new features for Google Maps. We have nothing further to announce at this time.>>

If it was fake Google would have denied it. Could be a quite cool feature.
