Orange, the European cellular operator, is focusing more on mobile TV more than LBS. Raphael Goumot of Orange said that, "The value proposition is clearer. LBS is more complex.

Many news watchers are noting all the (Google Maps mostly) mashups of information on the California fires. Great. My concern, expressed in a comment at Poynter.org, is that the source of the points on the map are not documented (at least in a way I can find). Why is this? Is it a tech issue? A time issue? A “journalists don’t know to do that” issue?

While here in the U.S. geo-types are at GEOINT or CTIA, Nokia is doing its thing in Finland. At its event, The Way We Live Next, the company is showing off its newly acquired Point and Find system. The technology, acquired from PIXTO earlier this year, allows a phone user to point at something - cinema, restaurant, person perhaps and get information about them. How? Well the phone has a camera, GPS and Internet access for starters.

I guess this is another reason they need to buy NAVTEQ.
