Google Goggles demonstrated on XPERIA X10

While Google has not yet made good on its promise of making the Google Goggles functionality available on handsets other than those running on Android, a new video does reveal how it works. The application can be seen running on the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 handset. The software will take a captured photo and submit it to Google's servers, which will then return all relevant search results for the image.

Goggles debuted on Android 1.6 smartphones, and can also recognize text and numbers, such as those in a barcode, to return results specific to the product in question. The app will also provides information about nearby businesses related to the photo search by displaying their names directly in the camera preview. Despite the XPERIA X10 application, it remains unknown when Google plans to release the software for devices that don't use the Android operating system, including Apple's popular iPhone.
