Interesting post by someone on the Lastminute.com Labs blog (i.e. a nameless person, the blog post doesn’t have a name on it) about location based services… or lack of, on the mobile web.

Obviously location is rather important when you’re a travel site creating mobile based services. You want to, for example, know if the customer is roaming or if they’re at home.
