Nokia adds GyPSii's LBS app to Symbian handsets

Geo-location service provider GyPSii announced that handset giant Nokia will add the Symbian version of the GyPSii application to its N95 and 6110 Navigator mobile devices. According to GyPSii, the web-based application--which combines social networking, location-based news, search services and user-generated content creation and sharing--is already optimized for Windows Mobile-based devices. "Consumer demand for mobile location based services is rising dramatically, and widespread handset compatibility is key to any company wishing to launch new and exciting services such as GyPSii into that market," said GyPSii CEO Dan Harple in a prepared statement. "Symbian is the dominant handset operating system, and Nokia the dominant handset manufacturer."
