Google Earth available for Motorola Droid
By Ricky Mauch

As of April 7th, Google Earth is available for use on the Motorola Droid. The Droid, over the past couple weeks, has been under an ongoing OTA update from Android 2.0 to 2.1. Google Earth requires the phone to have hardware floating-point acceleration - a feature found on phones such as the Nexus One and the Droid - but lacking in phones such as the HTC myTouch 3G and HTC Droid Eris. The upgrade to 2.1 enables the Droid to begin using the Google Earth App with Google Gesture Search, or to search the globe using Android 2.1's Speech-to-Text Feature. Google Earth is compatible with most Android 2.1 devices, but because of it's complex requirements, Google is leaving the owners of phones with previous Android builds wondering what future apps they will actually be able to use. You can find Google Earth by visiting m.google.com/earth on your Android Browser or by searching for it in the Android Market, and you can find all the new news related to Android at AndroidTrek.com.
