Sprint has partnered with InfoSpace to offer their own point-to-point navigational offering. Sprint Find It! will launch on over 20 phones, and will offer navigation services to businesses using the InfoSpace directory.
The application has been immediately met with comparisons to Google’s Local for Mobile Java application, but actually compares much more closely to the mini/light watered-down versions of Garmin Mobile and TeleNav that are similarly priced. Both competing applications are low-cost versions of their GPS navigation system, which are priced at $9.99/month.
Sprint declined to comment to us on many points of the upcoming service’s offerings, such as if the application will support manual address entry. The service will be offered for $2.99 a month.
Despite reports from other sources, this application will not be Sprint’s sole GPS solution. Sprint Family Locator will also run independently as a separate application, in addition to forthcoming GPS services from the CDMA carrier.
