Google vs Apple, Google Scores Again With Google Voice on the iPhone

In another chapter of the Google-Apple wars, of which we have written a few times about (post, post), Google (GOOG) said a new version of Google Voice works on browsers on iPhone 3.0 (and Palm Inc Web OS smartphones). Therefore, the GoogleVoice does not need to be certified as a native iPhone app. Apple (AAPL) had rejected the app, although it says it is "under review".

After Apple made that decision, Google CEO Eric Schmidt resigned from Apple's board of directors in August.

The U.S. Federal Communications Commission is investigating and requested more information from the companies on the matter.

Google Voice is a fabulous app that allows users to make cheap long-distance calls and to forward calls from a single phone number to multiple phones.

Of course this month, Google began selling the Nexus One smartphone.

The browser-based version of Google Voice has the ability to listen to voice mails directly from within the browser and to dial phone numbers on an interactive on-screen keypad.

Please see the above posts for options to profit from these wars.
