Networks In Motion partners with Ericsson

This agreement will enable mobile network operators to take advantage of Ericsson's extensive global telecommunications network services to offer their own branded versions of NIM's premier mobile phone navigation service to their customers, including voice-prompted turn-by-turn directions and 3-D ‘perspective view' maps as well as local search of millions of regularly updated POIs.

Additional services such as real-time traffic information, local event information, movie show times, weather forecasts, gas prices and more will also be made available.

According to Doug Antone, president & CEO of Networks In Motion, for the first time, more GPS-enabled handsets than PNDs will ship this year, indicating the tremendous acceptance of mobile phone navigation and associated location-based services by consumers and wireless carriers alike.
