I’m not about to turn into one of those corporate evangelist bloggers, but I have to say this is pretty cool. Nokia have announced GPS snap-on covers for their 5140 model, which has the ability to send annotated GPS waypoints as SMS. Potentially connecting SMS hackery to geowankery.
If they are cheap enough, and could reach a sufficient mass of urban explorers, this could inspire a wave of ground-up collaborative mapping efforts.
The covers even make the jock-friendly ‘active sports phone’ acquire a geek-chic, in a kind of smokey-black Borg way…
