Google to port Goggles to iPhone, others

Google Goggles not an Android exclusive

Google's just-unveiled Goggles feature won't be limited solely to Android devices, the company said today. Spokeswoman Katie Watson acknowledged that the company is developing the cameraphone-based photo searching for the "most popular" phones and operating systems, hinting at likely BlackBerry and iPhone releases.

The representative didn't give PCWorld a specific launch date, but it's unlikely to reach other platforms until the software exits Google's Labs stage and has received both additional polish and any planned features.

Expansion potentially allays fears that some Google Maps features might remain Android-exclusive. The company took a similar approach to Google Maps Navigation, at first providing a beta only for Android 2.0 but spreading it to Android 1.6 shortly afterwards. The company has already expressed a desire to bring this to the iPhone and has repeatedly said that sees adoption of Internet services as important regardless of the platform.
