YOUR GPS SYSTEM IS OBSOLETE ALREADY…

Google Maps and Google Streetview are among the most popular applications in the Google stable. Layered on to
these, Google has recently announced, will be free audio turn-by-turn navigation directions included with every
Android mobile OS shipped. This free innovation is made possible courtesy of the army of automobiles prowling the
world’s city streets building Google’s proprietary mapping database (at considerable cost to Google, no doubt).

DO OM F O R T O MT O M, GA RMI N
Not unexpectedly, the share prices of the proprietary (and non-free product vending) GPS device makers, TomTom
and Garmin, plummeted on the news of Google’s latest application. Observe the latest 10-day stock charts for the two
GPS device makers.

This Google development threatens the two leading smartphone players, Apple and BlackBerry. Since both of these
companies must purchase their own mapping data to offer a similar service, they are faced with the choice of taking a
hit to margins or shipping their smartphones without free navigation.

The possibilities for disruption in the mobile device space on the part of Google and its ad-based revenue model are
beginning to come to light with every new, free application press release. Though Android-equipped phones have not
made the same kind of splash as the iPhone nor have they the user-base loyalty of the BlackBerry, we expect that
developments along the lines of Google’s latest will continue to bring the Android phone segment into the forefront.
