Google Backpedals On Turn-By-Turn GPS For iPhone

Smurf writes “Last October Google’s Vice-President of Engineering Vic Gundotra announced that Google would bring turn-by-turn GPS navigation to the iPhone: ‘However, Google is working with Apple on bringing it to the iPhone, and it’s not ruling out licensing the software to makers of portable navigation devices used in cars throughout the world, said Gundotra, vice president of engineering at Google for mobile and developers.’
Nevertheless, after such plans were confirmed during a press conference in London yesterday, today the ‘Don’t be Evil’ company backpedaled on them: ‘”We did not say we would bring it to iPhone, we said to date we’ve had it on Android and that in the future it may come to other platforms but did not confirm this will be coming to iPhone at all,” a Google spokesperson told PCWorld.’”
