Apple’s App Store features iPhone 3G running Microsoft Virtual Earth

The fact of the matter is just as Macs originally run Microsoft’s Basic, and just as they are now capable  of accommodating Windows Vista and Windows XP, so is iPhone 3G playing nice with Virtual Earth. On the official webpage for the recently introduced App Store, Apple features an iPhone 3G running the Loopt application, which in its turn is a mash-up with Microsoft Virtual Earth at its basis.

“Loopt finds friends with Maps. There’s nothing like social networking on iPhone. Applications such as Loopt use location feeds to help you find friends on the go,” reads a message from Apple. The Cupertino hardware company fails to mention Microsoft Virtual Earth, but the picture of the iPhone 3G offers ample proof of what is behind Loopt. But in the end, it is not the first time that Apple hardware ran Microsoft software, more so, it is becoming quite a tradition.
