Network-based location is here!
This service is related to Sprint's previous Business Mobility Framework (BMF), but includes much broader access for third party developers.
In 2008, we saw location arrive on smart-phones (Apple iPhone, Google Android G1, and Blackberries powered by GPS/CellID/Wifi). In 2009, it would not be surprising if we see some further announcements from other carriers besides Sprint. After nearly 10 years of hype in location-based services, the year of LBS can be said to be finally arriving.
