Google: Latitude 'coming Soon' for IPhone

Google's just-announced Latitude, a service that lets users track the location of their friends--kind of like the Marauder's Map in "Harry Potter," except instead of an enchanted parchment you use Google Maps--is "coming soon" for the iPhone and iPod touch, according to Google's posts touting the feature.

In a list of phones Latitude supports, support for iPhone and iPod touch is listed as "Coming soon! ... via the Google Mobile App," at least in the United States.

It's a direct assault by Google on the location-savvy social networking used by apps such as Loopt.

Our pals down the hall at PC World have a more detailed look at how Google Latitude works, if you're curious.
