Google Maps to be in iOS 6 After All

At the beginning of the month, I posted about Google holding an event to show their new Maps features before Apple had a chance to hold an event announcing that Google Maps would be replaced in iOS 6.
 
It turns out, the rumors of the Google Maps demise was greatly exaggerated.
 
It turns out the Google Maps *will* be back in iOS 6.  According to a quote from Jeff Huber, who is an executive at Google "We look forward to providing amazing Google Maps experiences on iOS."  This from his Google + page.

So, despite all the hoopla from Apple, it looks like Google will be back.  

There is no direct word on how, when, or anything else, but this wouldn't have been put out in public if it wasn't going to happen.

As I find out more, I'll let you know.
