UPDATE: Google inca nu a trimis la Apple o aplicatie Google Maps conform lui Eric Schmidt

  Eric Schmidt, celebrul fost CEO al Google, a declarat ca deocamdata compania sa nu a trimis la Apple vreo aplicatie Google Maps care ar trebui publicata in App Store. Afirmatia a fost facuta in fata unor reporteri japonezi in timpul unei vizite ce a avut loc in Tokyo si ea nu este deloc surprinzatoare. Schmidt a declarat ca Apple si Google interactioneaza in fiecare zi, insa deocamdata o aplicatie Google Maps pentru iOS nu a fost trimisa pentru publicare in App Store, dar fostul CEO nu a spus daca a sa companie lucreaza sau nu la un asemenea proiect.

Google Inc. has not submitted a new Google Maps application to Apple Inc after the iPhone maker dropped the use of it in launching its newest device, the head of the world’s top search engine provider said on Tuesday. “We have not done anything yet,” Google Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt told a small group of reporters during a visit to Tokyo. “We’ve been talking with (Apple) for a long time. We talk to them every day,” he added.

  Dupa lansarea aplicatiei Maps in iOS 6, multa lume a presupus ca Google va lansa o aplicatie Google Maps pentru iOS, asa cum a lansat o noua aplicatie YouTube, insa acest lucru ar putea fi doar o pura presupunere in final. Da, Google a pierdut in cateva zile 100 de milioane de utilizatori ai platformei Google Maps, insa poate nu are vreun interes sa ofere pe iOS experienta sistemului sau, totul in ideea de a forta utilizatorii sa cumpere terminale Android daca vor harti bune.

UPDATE: O interpretare diferita a comentariilor lui Schmidt, acesta sustine ca Apple ar trebui sa aprobe o aplicatie Google Maps in App Store, dar nu s-a confirmat/infirmat trimiterea unei asemenea aplicatii catre compania din Cupertino.

“We haven’t done anything yet with Google Maps,” Schmidt told reporters in Tokyo today. Apple would “have to approve it. It’s their choice,” Schmidt said, declining to say if the Mountain View, California-based company submitted an application to Apple for sale through its App Store.
