Location Based Services: Emerging Growth

Description:

techfarm.blogspot.com/2007/07/growth-and-consolidation-in-location.html

Location Based Services will be everywhere, a high growth area. Everything which can move, from cell-phones to automobiles to converged mobile devices (imagine a camera, cell phone, MP3 player, video player, PDA, internet access device all in one product), will have GPS capability and services based on GPS capability.

Some applications could include Emergency 911 services (imagine how many lives will be saved), locating car and truck fleets, help users finding the nearest restaurants based on an individuals profile, match businesses to users, and allow someone in the Louvre, for example, to immediately get travel information, or be able to download videos to a converged mobile device.

This portfolio includes a basket of stocks to play this trend.

If you have any suggestions or comments, please leave me a note.
