Summary:

Sony Ericsson is all set to introduce location-aware phones. I has written last year that by end of 2005, location aware services could start to get traction. Might be off by a few months, but looks like it is finally starting to happen.

    This has never been a technology issue, it has always been a carrier control issue. Carriers do not care for features that don’t make them money. Until they figure out how to actually make money off of location aware features, and they have been trying for 5 years at least, they will not sell phones with these features active.
