No one doubted that Google will take proper care of its own mobile OS, giving it all the care and attention it needs to grow up nice and strong. Their developers have just come up with a handful of new features...

And I guess Goggle must also have face recognition (if it already recognises paintings etc) - I would be surprised if Goggle can not already recognise the likes of Mona Lisa! :-)

I expect that 2011 will be the year of augmented reality for mobile devices at a mainstream level which will significantly revolutionize the way we interact with the environment in the mobile arena and it will be a significant driver for smartphone sales. This is just the beginning.

I noticed the other day that icons for businesses started appearing in Google maps on my iPhone.

I wonder how much Google charges to have your business listed there?

All of Google's free stuff is ad supported which is ok as long as I can still find the services I want, not just be directed to the highest bidder.

OVI maps will always better it's in the same league as tomtom and garmin since nokia owns NavTeQ and garmin and Tomtom use NavTeQ which is top stuff

Google > Apple :D

  • Striking resemblance

Hah ?! I just started Google Maps and took a look in my Nokia, and it now DOES have detailed city map ! Woohoo...

  • Striking resemblance

the map in the screenshot resemble the maps displayed in Nokia Maps (now Ovi Maps...), but in the Android device the maps are provided by Google. Google does not have detailed city maps for many east-European cities, but Nokia Maps do. What gives ?
