Google Earth Mobile app now out for the Nexus One ‘Android 2.1′

There is a new app to add in the already intensive library of Google code for your Android phone. You can use it for everything from Gmail to Google Maps, and now you get to have a global view too thanks to the new Google Earth Mobile app for Android.

Developed to work with Android 2.1, the “fastest mobile version of Google Earth” is now available for download through the Google Marketplace. The Android edition of Google Earth will support a screen resolution of up to 800×480 pixels and a “smooth” frame rate.

Inside the app, you’ll find a roads layer that can be placed over top the digital satellite image. There’s also voice recognition to help you find your points of interest, whether they be specific locations or more general search terms. You can still browse through local businesses too.

The good news is that the new Google Earth app for Android is perfectly happy working on the Nexus One. The bad news is that it is not yet ready for the Motorola Droid, so you’ll have to wait for Moto to roll out Android 2.1 update for that phone first.

  1. the Android OS rules. invest your money in Google now. Android is the fast growing mobile OS. highly innovated, constant updates. their business model of partnering with multi-OEMs & multi-carriers is paying off. the Nexus One is the current champion!
    Apple is too busy being a media content vender. they may be the most popular but they just fell behind & their phone is getting stale. sales are plateauing.
    Microsoft’s window mobile (phone7 or whatever they’re trying the fool the public with) will go downwards. their DRM for their apps will be cracked & devs won’t make any $$.
    as for Palm, sell all your stocks now. they waited too long to do anything & now it’s too late.

  2. i want to see jamnagar in net.
