However, this is not meant to be a competitive edge for the Droid, at least at this stage.

This comes in the backdrop of constant squabbling between the two companies in the past few months over
for the iPhone . Google CEO, Eric Schmidt who had to
in the wake of these disputes, has however insisted that Google has always been a fan of iPhone and there is no rivalry between the two companies.
While it is not clear if Apple would approve a Google built GPS navigation system for the iPhone , it certainly spells doom for the other GPS navigation tools available on the iPhone today. The GPS navigation apps are among the most expensive apps on the Apple App Store. While the
