One day, eventually, we’ll finally start to unlock the power of mobile phones for location based services. This is an example of the kind of thing that in 5-10 years time I think will be commonplace. This service was introduced earlier in 2006 and “Patrick Bray, a GeoVector representative in Japan, estimated that 1.2 million to 1.5 million of the handsets had been sold. GeoVector and its partners said they did not know how many people were actually using the service, because it is free and available through a public Web site” (from NYT article)
