Google Goggles now available for Android

Update: This application is available for Android 1.6 and above. (Sorry Sprint, CLIQ, and Eris users)

News of Google Goggles broke over the weekend and the application is now available in the Android Market. The service has been in testing since August and this is the first time the public has had a chance to play with the app. Google Goggles allows users to snap photos with their camera phone and match results based on the object. Download the application and check back later for our full review.

Google Goggles is a visual search app.  Instead of using words, take a picture of an object with your camera phone: we attempt to recognize the object, and return relevant search results. Goggles also provides information about businesses near you by displaying their names directly in the camera preview.
