Last week at MWC, Google CEO Eric Schmidt demoed Google Earth on his Nexus One, giving a pretty clear sign that the new application would be available to the masses very soon. And, as of today, the wait is over. Google has released its mobile version of Google Earth into the Android Market, albeit with one large prerequisite. The new Earth for Android will require a handset running Android 2.1, leaving pretty much everyone without a Nexus One out in the cold. N1 owners can head on over to the Market and download the fresh bits from Google. As for the rest of us… patience it a virtue?
