Google Maps is rumored to get a UI overhaul next week. According to the Google Operating System blog (an unofficial Google blog), the new interface will nix the sidebar and overlay all the information on top of a full page screen.

The blog doesn't mention where the screenshots or information came from, however the timing may make sense as the Google I/O conference will also be next week.

We have asked Google for comment and will update with any information as it comes in.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
