Tele Atlas says 90% of web developers think LBS will be a revenue generator


I’m not sure what all this fuss is over Web 2.0, especially since BlackBerry Cool has been Web 5.1 since at least early 2007. However, our good friends at Tele Atlas have announced today the findings from their “LBS and Web 2.0 Impact Survey” conducted at the recent Web 2.0 Expo. What are the pertinent deets?
