Google CEO: Apple/Google Collaborating On More Projects

by , 9:40 AM EST, March 6th, 2007

Speaking at a technology conference in San Francisco, Google CEO Eric Schmidt confirmed that his company is collaborating with Apple Inc. on several more projects. His comments were in response to a question about rumors that the companies are co-developing a tablet-style computer, according to MarketWatch.

Mr. Schmidt neither confirmed or denied that an Apple/Google tablet computer is in the works. He did, however, state that the two companies are "doing more and more things together. We have similar goals, similar competitors."

Google's search and map functions will be included in Apple's new iPhone - a combination iPod and smart phone - that will be released in June. Neither company has commented on whether or not those functions will work the same as they do on other smart phones, or if there will be additional or enhanced features.

What other projects the Apple and Google are working on together remains to be seen.
