Android owners will soon have a way to locate their lost devices. Later this month, Google will release a new app called Android Device Manager, which will allow Android users to track down their devices on a map in real time, active their ringer, and even wipe their contents. It'll be available for all devices running Android 2.2 and up which, at 98.7 percent of devices, is just about everyone and will require being hooked up to a Google account. The move is a long time coming for Google, which hasn't been quick to provide the same types of robust device recovery tools as Apple has for iOS devices.
