Google Street view on phone - am I missing something?

Just saw a couple clips of Google's Android Phone OS. There are some things that are cool and improved (like the unlock pattern code). But I'm a bit baffled by this feature:

So if you are standing on a street, what exactly is the point of being able to pan around and see what is right in front of you on your phone? Now maybe around the corner is cool - but the compass part of that would only confuse you I think.
