article imageWhat an app on Google's Android might look like

By Chris V. Thangham     Nov 8, 2007 in Technology
Valleywag.com is reporting that a first wireless application for the Google’s new Android mobile platform was already created by WhatsOpen.com, which show people nearby stores that are open for business.
Google announced Android platform for mobiles this Monday and already there are developers who are creating special applications for it. The application is not officially released by either Google or WhatsOpen.com, but photos of the applications have been released indirectly by inside sources.
The application looks something like below. The application will help users to find the best stores and restaurants near the location they are in, so it will be a handy tool to use when visiting or traveling to other cities.

According to Valleywag, the application appears to use a Google map mash-up to display stores that are open in the vicinity. It also appears to have user-written reviews, which appear in Google maps under business names.
This will be a great application for cellphones, which many of the basic mobile sets don’t currently have. In addition to the plain address, calendar information, applications like the above, it will add great value to mobile phones.
Expect more such programs in the coming days, and once Android is fully ready by the middle of next year, then the mobile phone will become a necessary tool to have.
