Google Earth for the Android phone is now available on the Verizon DROID, according to Peter Birch, writing on the Google LatLongBlog.

Google Earth for Android launched in early March, but the specific needs of adapting it for Verizon’s phone and service took an extra month.

According to Birch, Google Earth for Android is compatible with most Android devices running 2.1. More Android phones will accommodate Google Earth as they adopt Android 2.1 or higher.

“Google Earth requires hardware floating-point acceleration, so it will run on devices such as DROID and Nexus One, but not on devices such as myTouch 3G and DROID ERIS.”
