Though the first Google Android cell phone is going to be coming in a little bit late to the smartphone game, it’s pricing is certainly “aggressively priced” to match the current champ to beat – the $199 Apple iPhone 3G. Android is Google’s mobile platform and answer to the iPhone SDK which they have been promoting wildly with cash-fueled developer competitions to spread adoption and awareness. HTC of Taiwan, makers of the Excalibur smartphone, is the manufacturing company that will provide the Google Android-enabled phone for T-Mobile to market in the US. Look for further details to be released at an event in New York in about a week. T-Mobile has long been eyeing the success rival AT&T has been enjoying with the exclusive rights to the iPhone, so T-Mobile, Google, and HTC all have a lot of hope riding on the new smartphone. Let’s hope they don’t let us down.

Yeah, I read the download box when I installed it, said something to the nature of (only for Windows XP and Vista machines), but heck I installed it anyways – isn’t that what we all do? While most of Chrome works when I go and close the app, I get the nice error message above. Its still a beta app so I am sure Google is working on it? Also, I am not sure if it is limited to my machine or if its a more wide spread issue. If anyone else has gotten this message, please chime in. Good times!

Its pretty easy to get Incognito working, all you have to do is hit the little page icon on the top of the bar and then select “New incognito window”. The short cut keys for this are “Ctrl+Shift+N”

This feature seems to be very similar to the new feature Internet Explorer 8 has called “InPrivate browsing” (also called the porn button).
Happy porn surfing!

PSP-Maps is a tool that allows you to browse Google Maps, Virtual Earth and Yahoo Maps with your PSP and its WiFi connection. You can move around the map, zoom in and out, cycle through the different available views, search for an address, load/save favorites, etc.

It includes a cache system so you can browse later the maps you have previously seen, even if you don’t have WiFi available. There is also a PC version if you don’t have WiFi at all, so you can build a cache on your computer and copy it to your PSP.

Technically, PSP-Maps connects directly to the servers to fetch the images, it does not use the provided APIs since there are usually in JavaScript and not convenient for a homebrew.

Google recently launched a mobile friendly Google Talk chat web app aimed specifically for iPhone and iPod Touch users, in a nod to its rival Apple in the mobile platform space. You may have heard about Google’s open mobile platform called Android to which as far as anyone is concerned is just vaporware until it actually shows up in phones that consumers will want to buy despite Google’s attempts to attract developers to its platform.
