Bye, Bye Navigator

4:55 PM -- Is anyone surprised that dedicated GPS navigation device manufacturers are hitting hard times now?

Nokia in particular has made it clear that it is going to incorporate navigation features into its many of phones and mobile applications in a big way, as are other major phone vendors and carriers. The technology also appears to work well enough to allow this to happen now (except in downtown Manhattan but that's a sure-fire blind spot for any GPS-based device).

2008 probably marks the death-knell of the standalone GPS navigator.
