Is anybody else annoyed that the mobile Google Earth app is only for iPhone?

What's the point of Google having its own mobile platform if they give one of their coolest apps exclusively to their competitor? I know that Google likes to make their services available on as many platforms as possible, but it would be nice if they would at least announce that an Android version is in the works. I'm totally jealous.

I don't have any problem with iPhone getting streetview, I'm not being anti-iPhone or anything, I just get ticked off that Google developed this awesome app and DIDN'T bring it to Android.

I agree, but I have a feeling that they've been working on that for a while. I'm sure the Android version will be along before too long.

Yeah... I can't even believe that. I'm even more bummed that google maps seems to be more limited than it was on my Blackberry. On the BB you could find a store and go to a "details" page where you could get info like store hours, etc.

That and I'm REALLY not happy with the cut/paste process in its current form. ;)

well if you want to get technical...

Android doesn't have full use of Google Docs.

Doesn't have apps for Blogger or Picasa.

But, like everything else Google, I'm sure they're working on integration.

If we were supposed to wait until all those services were ready the phone wouldn't be available until 2010, and it would probably cost twice as much.

Go to Google Maps, type something, like Pizza Hut, a ton shows up, pick one, it shows up on the map, like this: <-Pizza Hut-> tap the name that's on the map, it'll bring up Details on the store, name, address, phone, url, etc..
