Sprint Nextel launches LBS directory services

Sprint Nextel said it plans to launch a local directory mobile-phone service today with information such as driving directions and movie times. The $2.99 a month service, called Find It, combines location aware phones and directory information from InfoSpace that lets users search out locations without having to enter a postal code or even know where they are. Sprint already has a plethora of location-based services on its iDEN service and told me last year that it was working on porting many of those applications onto the CDMA side.
