BlackBerry's Locate Service Without GPS

blackberry locate service.jpgBlackBerry Locate Service is a new launch by RIM which enables GPS- free location search. You may stay inside your office or home without GPS facility. However your app can locate the land marks, freeways, gas stations, restaurants, cinemas, etc., in your locality. Though there is no high degree of accuracy, the app locates the places of interest to a great extent. The user gets a quick idea about the place of his search. The app is more useful in such cases where exact location details are not important but a rough idea would be sufficient to proceed with the exploration.

Though this technology is not new(getting the location using celltowers), it is heartening to note that RIM has included this app in Blackberry for the benefit of its users. Good going RIM.
