+ - Google Maps Navigation now on all Android Devices

Submitted by farble1670
farble1670 (803356) writes "Google has rolled Google Maps Navigation for all Android 1.6+ devices, even the lowly HTC Dream (aka T-Mobile G1). Features include traffic, satellite, and street view overlaid with your route. PC World has a nice feature overview. What does this mean for dedicated GPS device makers, now that a free, "good enough" turn by turn GPS is available to the ever-increasing number of Android users? What does it mean for the iPhone, where Google has yet to port this application? Google says it will port, if Apple approves.

After using it for a few days now, I agree with the "good enough" verdict."

farble1670 writes "The European Commission on FLOSS (Free/Libre Open Source Software) has made it official — Sun contributes to and participates in more open source projects than any other commercial company, including IBM, Red Hat, Novell and HP. See the Economic impact of FLOSS on innovation and competitiveness (page 51) for the breakdown. In person months, Sun contributes over 3x more than the second place company, IBM.

This was concluded prior to the OpenJDK announcement, so we will see Sun's contributions grow significantly in the near future."
