SameCell let me know about a new free application that they just released. It essentially lets you do location based search based on the location of your cell tower ID. That way you can search near your location without GPS. It lets you search for places, services, weather and events near you.
Pretty interesting if you want to check it out but nothing groundbreaking. They essentially offer a bit more than Google Maps and Poynt in terms of specifying what you are searching for.
