Location-based services (LBS) are hot. Recent surveys find that over half of all mobile consumers want devices with navigation, and six of the nine most-wanted consumer mobile applications (beyond voice) are location-related. Operators are aggressively rolling out location-based services, including navigation, friend-finding services, and real-time traffic information. Among developers, roughly 75% see immediate opportunities for commercial LBS applications, and nearly 60% plan to incorporate location information into their applications, finds a Nokia survey. Nokia is ready with an unmatched ecosystem for creating mobile LBS applications, including location UIs, a map and navigation framework, location acquisition interface, and more. Nokia Maps, for example, is the company's navigation platform for mobile operating systems. But there are still many opportunities for creative new content and applications. Forum Nokia intends to support developers with LBS tools, code examples, technical assistance, and more.
