    Why is this move suspect? iPhone has Google Maps. Google Voice. Google Search (now with push). Gmail (push). Whats the harm in adding Google Goggles? Just another great cross platform app.

    My entire point was that iPhone has several Google apps and support. I dont see how adding an app such as Goggles is a bad/poor move.....

    I just feel that Android should have apps that are exclusive to the Android Platform. You know to kind of distinguish themselves from IOS4. To create selling points. I know the Iphone has Gmail, Google Maps, and search. But so does my PC. Goggles is a app that Google can use to give themselves a little advantage. I show it off all the time to my Iphone buddies and they are always wowed. I guess pretty soon they can have it to. Just my 2 cents.

    Hey I'm not one of these guys that hates Apple. I had the first iPhone and loved it but hated the network..IMHO I think thats why we have the great phones that we do is because of the iPhone but I think we need to keep all the good Google stuff to ourselves. Android is great and I want the other phones to see what they are missing..:D

    Good point. But we still have Chrome to Phone, FREE navigation, and open source development :)

    I have no beef with Apple. Great company with great products. Poor Apple just got hooked up with a network that FAILS all the time. But all in all.....Android FTW!!!

    True but where does it stop? What if Google makes a extension for safari just like firefox has one to use Chrome to phone. Google Navigation could easily (though not likely) be ported over to IOS.
