Google is doing all that it can to sell its Android. With very less takers in the mobile market, it surely needs some apps that are impressive to beat its giant competitors like Symbian and Windows Mobile. The recent Google Earth for Android 2.1 on Nexus One is just what Google wanted.
The new Nexus One is a power packed beauty with 1GHz processor, Android 2.1 and advanced 3D graphics card. The Nexus is also thin and user friendly comparing other android mobile models.
Google claims that its Google Earth for Android is the fastest mobile version of Google Earth with an 800 x 480 screen. Google Earth for Android would contain road layers, road labels on top of satellite imagery very much like the desktop version of Google Earth.
Google have also integrated the Android voice recognition feature into Google Earth so you can get the location of a prominent place by just speaking to the mobile. Isn’t that a cool feature? But is it as simple as it sounds? One has to check it out first hand to comment on this.
Other common features on Google Earth are browsing photos, places and local businesses. Clicking on an icon can let you see videos, photos and info about places around the world.
Google Earth will also be available to all other devices using Android 2.1 or later.
