Patently Apple today details a new social networking application called ‘iGroups’ that, in a nutshell, allows members of a group attending an event to stay in communication, including using GPS coordinates and tokens to exchange encrypted information.  This might be one of the reasons we don’t see Google’s Latitude application on our iPhones.

It is also interesting to note, as TechCrunch did last night, that Apple is highlighting location based services on the heels of SXSW.

Oh, and there is that pesky center-mounted camera we keep seeing.
