Android Community has three videos up from a recent presentation by Google, showing off the latest version of the open-source, Linux-based Android smartphone OS. It looks really fantastic, swiping many cues from the iPhone but adding several neat tricks of its own.
You really should click through to Android Community and watch the video showing the live Google Street View mapping application matched up to a motion sensor and compass. It’s probably the first useful commercial implementation of an augmented reality device. It’s a system seller.
I adore my iPhone (and already have cash earmarked for the new one), but it makes me really happy to see Android coming together so well. Apple always behaves better when there is a smart competitor keeping them in check.
