China ripe for GPS-enabled BlackBerrys

GPSIf the BlackBerry 8330 isn’t getting GPS, RIM might want to rethink that option. It turns out China is hurting for affordable location-based services, and for all the talk at WES, they could be in a position to fill that gap. They’re still getting their feet wet in Oriental waters, but making a good impression early on in a new market could set the tone for the rest of their efforts in China. If the BlackBerry 8130 was packing some GPS, then RIM could cash in on the demand with a reasonably priced handset, but even with Wi-Fi alone, you can get some decent location services working.
