"Google said its new Google Maps Navigation product will provide real-time, turn-by-turn directions directly within cell phones that are based on the new version of its Android software."
"He would not comment on whether Apple's iPhone, which offers Google mapping software as part of its standard menu of built-in applications, would offer the new navigation features. He said, in response to a question, that the latest version of the iPhone, the iPhone 3GS, has the horsepower to support the navigation product."

Seems like Google has been very hostile towards Apple lately , maybe there is something big going on behind the scenes ?
The only thing I can think of you're referring to is the Google Voice thing. Seems Google may feel it has a reason to be hostile, but Apple has its reasons for rejecting the app.
Of course Google is interested in selling an app to a company that currently has 23% of the US smart-phone market, and 14% of the global market. And they did that in just 2 years and 4 months. Anyone not wanting to hop on that gravy train would be stupid.
But Apple would be stupid to not want to make some kind of agreement with Google either IMO, something where the software wouldn't be so invasive in to the interface.
