Wireless carrier Sprint released its first mobile phone powered by Google's Android operating system, the HTC Hero, only a few days ago, yet it seems that the handset has already conquered people's hearts. The handset and its platform seem attractive enough to drive some enthusiasts towards using the former for some things that it hasn't been used for before, including running Google Wave on it.
Some of you might have already learned that Google Wave was spotted on Apple's iPhone recently, and that it made a good impression there, and now we learn that the guys over at droiddog have tried Google Wave on Sprint's newly launched HTC Hero, and it went along pretty well. Basically, in a way, this shows that Google Wave works on Android.
In case you were wondering what Google Wave stands for, since it is a relatively new notion, here are some details: “Google Wave is an online tool for real-time communication and collaboration. A wave can be both a conversation and a document where people can discuss and work together using richly formatted text, photos, videos, maps, and more. [...] Any participant can reply anywhere in the message, edit the content and add participants at any point in the process. Then playback lets anyone rewind the wave to see who said what and when.”
In other words, Google Wave is aimed at bringing email, blogging, Twitter, social networking, office collaboration and more in a single place. One thing that is certain is that the concept seems to be a very interesting one. Those who would like to learn more about it should head here, where they can also sign in for an invitation.
