That's certainly the key piece. Phone companies need to find alternate business models. The idea of free phones supported by ads is hardly far fetched, and the most valuable ads will be location-dependent.

Interesting, indeed - and perfectly understandable in the light of Nokia being the market leader in mobile phone / GPS linked technologies (eg friend finders, navigators, mobile travel guides, etc.). Smart move, something to keep an eye on.
