Google has launched a developer preview of its ambitious new service called Wave. It claims to be "a new model for communication and collaboration on the web". The service is available as a preview at the Google I/O 2009, Moscone Center, San Francisco.

Developed by brothers Lars and Jens Rasmussen and Stephanie Hannon from Google's Sydney office, Wave claims to be "what email would look like if it were invented today." From the screenshots, Google wave looks to have followed the steps of Yahoo! Remember Yahoo! launched a smarter email few months back? Although Google Wave has integrated almost all applications of Google, from Gmail to Google Maps to Picasa. Wave also offers a robust API for the developers to build applications on it. Scheduled to be released later this year, this undoubtedly one of Google's most awaited app.
