There was a comparison about Google and OSM a fow years ago. It showed
that even on some non-European countries (e.g. Africa) a lot of citties
are mapped better in OSM than Google: at least at that time there was no
financial benefit for the commercial map providers to map all these
places. Maybe this improved a little bit, but I don't think so...
