Microsoft, Sprint Debut GPS-Aware Search

Fulfilling a promise made when they began their partnership late last year, when Microsoft and Sprint launched Windows Live Search across the Sprint mobile web, Microsoft and Sprint have added GPS-enabled local search functionality to their offering.

Sprint's local search as well as full Internet search through the carrier's mobile portal would now be powered by Microsoft. The local search would also be GPS-aware, allowing consumers to search around their location as detected by the Sprint's network.

The new functionality would be available immediately at no-cost to customers of Sprint's data plans, and would work with most phones.

No cost?  Most phones?  Sign us up!  Oh wait, our iPhone only works with AT&T ... darn.
