Google Earth now available for Motorola Droid

Google has announced that they have updated their Google Earth for Mobile application to work on the Motorola Droid smartphone.

This has been largely made possible by the recently released Android 2.1 update for the Droid platform.

Google spoke about Google Earth for Droid:

Remember, with Google Earth for Android you can view the same 3D imagery and terrain that’s available in the desktop version of Google Earth, all from the palm of your hand. And you can travel around the globe with the swipe of a finger or a simple voice command — Android’s voice recognition together with Google Local Search make it easy for you to search for cities, places, and businesses anywhere in the world. You can also browse layers of geographic information including roads, borders, Panoramio photos, and more.

The company said that Google Earth on mobile requires the mobile phone to have hardware floating-point acceleration so it would only work on recently launched devices which are running Android 2.1.
