Microsoft Virtual Earth is being used as the base platform for Loopt's new social search application on the new version of the iPhone.
You can view a demo video on CNET.
Per Loopt's website:
"Using location-based technologies, Loopt lets you know where your friends are by automatically updating maps on your mobile handset. Loopt even lets you send messages to nearby friends or receive automatic alerts when they're nearby so that you never miss an opportunity to meet. Loopt also lets you journal your life so that your friends can see what you're up to. With Loopt, mobile subscribers put themselves on the map."
