Google Goggles Coming to iPhone “By The End of 2010”

We have a release date for Google’s Goggles iPhone application. Sort of. The Register reports that, during the Hot Chips conference at Stanford University on Monday, Google staff engineer David Petrou confirmed that Goggles for iPhone is almost ready, and should be released by the end of 2010.

We previously reported that Google project manager Shailesh Nalawadi confirmed the existence of Goggles for iPhone, and he said it would be available “soon”. Now Google is hoping for a late 2010 release, but I have the feeling it’s going to take a while for a new Google app to be approved.

Google Goggles is a great new technology (still in development) which enables the user to take a picture of an item, send it to Google’s servers and have smart search results right there on the phone. If you missed it, check out the promo video below.
