Vodafone selects Tele Atlas to power all future location based mobile services

Vodafone is one of the largest mobile operators in the world, spread out in 25 countries under the Vodafone brand, and partnering with operators in 42 other nations. When they make a decision, it ripples through out the entire industry. Nokia purchased NAVTEQ for over $8 billion with the intention of becoming the world’s best, and largest, provider of maps. That may still be possible, but it isn’t going to be with the help of Vodafone.
