Google StreetView Going Global?

Or at least to London? A VW bug with a camera attached to the top has been spotted in London. Could be Google? Maybe expanding to areas around their offices in other countries? Nothing has been confirmed yet.

I think this could pick up if Google started going to major Global Cities. Think about it, you could go site seeing without ever leaving your desk. The top cities on my list would be London, Tokyo, Paris, Venice, Dublin, and Hong Kong. I am hopefully going to two of these in the next 6 months (Tokyo and London) around the holidays. Although, Google might have some legal hoops to jump through if they decide to do this.
