One thing that the G1 and Android community could say they had that the iPhone didn’t was Google StreetView.
Bad news for them, Apple will be releasing a new update for the iPhone (2.2) and it should feature Google StreetView within the maps application. This update will also fix a few bugs, add an option to disable auto-correction in SMS messages, and support for emoji icons (email smilies and such).
No release date has been set for this update.
In a move that could be seen as ”aggressive” by some, Google has refused to provide an iPhone compatible version of their StreetView service. Keep in mind that StreetView will be available on all Android-compatible phones. Is this the start of exclusive content on cell phones?
We are more than used to this in the gaming industry, where we see exclusive titles reserved for only a specific gaming console like the war between Sony’s PS3, Microsoft’s XBox and Nintendo’s Wii. So why not for cell phones?
