Statement from Apple
Not sure if this is new or not but it was certainly new to me. Apple Answers the FCC’s Questions
Answers a lot of questions regarding Google Voice, then gives the usual answers that you would expect regarding the approval process for all applications.

I've got to figure out a way to cross-post more front page stuff here
Includes TiPb's take on:
- Apple Responds to FCC Questions (Google and AT&T as Well)
- Apple: 8500 Apps to Review a Week by 40 Odd Reviews
- AT&T To Reconsider VoIP Applications Over 3G? Yeahbuwhat Apple VoIP apps?
- Do Other Countries Lose Out on Apps Because of AT&T Policies?
- Apple iPhone is a Restaurant, Not a Super Market, and They Should Say So on the Sign
- Apple Afraid Google is Taking Over the iPhone?
- Apple Kicking Themselves They Didn’t Buy GrandCentral (Google Voice) First?
Whoops, must have missed it the first time through on the blog. I just saw it today on apple's website and could not remember having seen it before. Thanks for the link to the blog post Rene.

you can read it here also instead of your site haha
The site you suggested is using a free blog php script and has only 4 news articles for the whole month so far... They are averaging almost 1 article every 5 days... Why would I or anyone get my news from there... Mr. Newz, did a 5 yearold come up with that?
and apples response below, no need to leave this site for the same article

I have read both the Apple and Google response and this soo feels like he said - she said. I'm thinking that this may have something to do with the fact that Apple has now identified google as a competitor instead of a partner.

Apple is lying through it's lawyers' teeth. I think if they hadn't denied the app and were still discussing it with Google, then Google would know it. Apple is back-peddling and while other apps get either accepted or denied in a couple of weeks, this app will still be "being considered" well into the next iPhone iteration.
