Today Google announced a new version of its Goggles product for Android devices. Goggles version 1.1 now recognizes a number of new languages, including English, French, German, Italian and Spanish. Users can take pictures of text written in these languages, and Goggles will analyze the text and return results in the language of the users choice. According to Google, the new version of Goggles also features an improved barcode recognition tool; the ability to recognize more products, logos and artwork; a re-worked user interface; and the ability to initiate visual searches using images from a phone's photo gallery. The new version of Google Goggles is available in the Android Market to all devices running Android 1.6 and up.

Sounds Great but oh wait...

Gee still no update to 2.1 on the Samsung Moment you would think sprint would want to sell more of these devices and not just be concerned with its Evo which ya looks great but not everyone and there mother is gonna jump right in and buy it!
Everywhere I go I see more crap about the 2.1 update. It's spreading like a zombie virus. Only I'm pretty sure that the zombie virus would be much more interesting at this point, and probably more relevant to this article.
