Google offers free GPS

GPS mapReflecting the trend toward consolidating functions on hand-helds, Google is offering free GPS navigation system for mobile phones – a potentially big blow to stand-alone GPS makers.  Professor N. Venkat Venkatraman, head of the School of Management’s IS Department, says it’s logical to extend Google Maps to mobile phones.

“Google realizes that it needs killer apps for the phone beyond just offering the Android OS.”
