Google Latitude for iPhone coming soon, will let you track your friends

A native Google Latitude app for iPhone is soon to be released and should be available in an App Store shortly if it isn't already. Latitude is a service that uses location-based check-ins to let you track your friends online (with all appropriate privacy guards, of course).

UPDATE: Latitude has been pulled from the Japanese App Store. TechCrunch thinks the release might have been accidental and an official, publicized release could be coming soon. Now back to the original post already in progress...

You can grab the PDF of the letter right here.

Google Finally Provides Latitude to iPhone Users -- Yeah, it's a WebApp

Google Latitude -- the service that either allows you to keep track of your friends or be stalked by stalking stalker types, depending on your point of view -- is finally available for the iPhone and iPod touch. No, it's not built into Google Maps as part of iPhone 3.1 with push update capability. No, it's not built into Google Mobile app. No, it's not even set up as an iPhone app in and of itself.

Google Latitude is a WebApp and it runs in Mobile Safari using the iPhone 3.0 geoLocation feature.
