TeleNav announces it will debut the world's first HTML5 browser-based navigation service
In its quest to stay ahead of the competition, TeleNav announced its plans to bring to market the world’s first GPS navigation service based on HTML5 browser technology. When you think about it, they surely have something spectacular in the works considering that you won’t necessarily need to download or use an app to use the service. Rather, it’s all going up to the clouds, as any existing mobile web browser will be able to access the full arsenal of the service.
Even better, TeleNav is going to make it a free service, and it’ll even include features such as colorful maps, turn-by-turn spoken directions, and automatic rerouting – some of the normal things we tend to find with all GPS apps. As for an excepted availability date, TeleNav is projecting to have the service ready to go by early 2012.

The only concern I would have is what about when you are out of cellular coverage? That is one disadvantage with the TeleNav service. Also, there is the hit on your data plan depending on how frequently TeleNav gets used. Sprint unlimited (and other Carriers' grand-fathered customers) users are not yet impacted, but almost everyone else is.

If we are referring to Browser phones here, I want to bring this into your notice about this great VoIP app i have been using. Im extremely happy and thought it might give others way out of their problematic Voice and data access apps. I tested FriendCaller Browser-based WebPhone on quite many browsers such as Mozzila, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Safari, Opera Mini and it served all very well. Its calling rates are extremely cheap and the great thing is, this app not only works on Windows, but Linux, Mac OS and all SmartPhones such as iPhone, iPod touch iPad and Android. It kind of did revolutionize the existing methods of all other VoIPs. Check this out :)https://www.friendcaller.com/w
