Sprint has just rolled out a new service that takes advantage of the location-awareness functionality on your phone that's mostly been dead weight up until now (unless you've needed 911 help, that is), in the form of a mobile search site called "Find It!" For $3-a-month, Find It! lets you search for businesses or get driving directions without the need to input your current location -- technology from InfoSpace gleans that info directly from your phone. As you'd expect for a monthly fee, you also get standard search features such as phone number lookup, movie listings, etc, all on any web-enabled Sprint Nextel phone that supports J2ME apps.
