    Google Earth is not on Android Market for my Flytouch 3. However, I found the .apk on Google's webiste and installed it. Unfortunately it won't run. Anybody have a workaround?

    Your processor may not be compatible

    Thanks for reply. If what you suggest is true, doesn't that imply that Google Earth makes calls directly to the processor instruction set bypassing Android. I wonder why they would do that.

    This Android business reminds me of the early days of PC-DOS.

    some apps use Native code (you can check by opening the .APK and seeing if there is a lib folder)
    Apps like Google Earth, Firefox Flash, need processor functions not present in ARMv6 processors, and these processors are far too slow to emulate these functions
