BlackBerry 9900 - Need Google Maps

Guys,

 

I just bought BB9900 yesterday and after a bit of a struggle, I managed to install Opera Mini, however, I'm having a tough time finding "Google Maps" on appworld.blackberry.com.

 

I followed the steps provided my google on my BB browser, but it doesnt give me a download link for google maps.

 

Any help please? Thanks

Although there is no direct link to download google maps, the following link helped install it on my BB9900.
