Big Red to open GPS for 3rd party applications
Since Verizon subscribers have put up a fight against the locked GPS feature (and continue doing so), it seem like the big Red is finally working on the case. A reply to a user e-mail has been posted on the net, saying that Verizon is partnering with Windows Mobile phone manufacturers in order to deliver an open GPS support, comparable in quality to the current feature, offered by the carrier.

First results are expected in the first half of 2009 and include devices like the Omnia, Saga and Touch Pro.
