Google (NSDQ: GOOG) isn’t waiting for the result of the FCC’s investigation into why Apple (NSDQ: AAPL) rejected a Google Voice app for the iPhone and is instead going ahead and launching a workaround for iPhone users.
iPhone owners will now be able to use a web-based version of the Google Voice app, which seemingly has all the features a native mobile app would have. It works for the Palm (NSDQ: PALM) Pre too. (See a video here).
The web-based version had been rumored to be in the works for months. A week after Apple rejected the Google Voice app — spurring the FCC to launch its investigation — the NYT reported that a web-based replacement was being designed. The FCC inquiry, meanwhile, is apparently still pending.
