PRIMEZONE -- Sept 27 -- WaveMarket a pioneer in location-based services, today announced that the company has partnered with Psynet, the leading mobile dating application company and SK Telecom, Korea's number one mobile communications company, to launch the world's first operator-based location-based dating alert service. SK Telecom subscribers can receive notifications when they are near a potential date-match. Weekend clubbing will never be the same. Users are alerted when a fellow user with a compatible profile is nearby and an anonymous chat can be initiated real time on your mobile phone.
Mark Brooks: Wow, I need to get to South Korea and check this out! The Asian internet dating convention is in May '06 in Beijing btw. Location based services are the way of the future. However, U.S. carriers have some concerns about liability. The technology is ready though, apparently.
