Its is interesting to note that the main example Collins chooses is a GPS BlackBerry. He even claims that these new GPS applications will make dedicated GPS device obsolete.

Collins sat down with Fortune at the Cellular Telecommunications Industry Association show in San Francisco. He says that AT&T is finishing up network upgrades that will allow the company to launch location-based services in the first quarter of 2008. Collins says he expects his major U.S. competitors, including Verizon Wireless (VZ), Sprint (S) and T-Mobile (DT), to amp up their mapping-related offerings as well.

“We do think that this is a very big idea,” Collins says, “the idea of having my own personal points of interest, and having the ability to navigate whether I’m in a new city or in my own town.”
