Motorola Droid: Apple Claims iPhone Clone

A few years back we thought that Apple and Google were making nice, but it seems that things have changed. Both Eric Schmidt and Steve Jobs shared a stage three years ago to show off a new gadget — the iPhone — at the MacWorld Expo. The two companies had worked together to use Google’s search technology for the 1st-generation iPhone.

Three years is a long time and things are not the same for Google or Apple — both are embattled in a bitter fight in the smartphone market, on one side you have the dominant iPhone 3GS and on the other you have the Android platform.

One of the newest Google OS handsets is the Motorola Droid — which Apple claims is an iPhone clone, this is according to a report on the New York Times.

Apple has made a number of claims over other phone makers, but according to reports feel betrayed by Google the most. Steve Jobs feels that Google violated what they thought was a friendly alliance between the two companies, as they have developed a handset that resembles the iPhone physically and technologically.
