User generated content, WHERE platform, Nokia N95 - hot at LBS Challenge

One couldn't help noticing a few trends in this year's Navteq LBS Challenge - perhaps you watched the award ceremony via live webcast? Some of the obvious trends that I noticed while getting the skinny on the finalists:
- the uLocate WHERE developer platform is the developer tool of choice this year for LBS apps - 10 of the top 15 apps used WHERE!
- The Nokia N95 seemed to be the device of choice for demos - most of the demos I saw were running on the N95, although not the N95 8GB... odd!
- According to Navteq, more than half of this years' apps incorporated some form of user-gerated content - of note, last year the hot trend was social networking apps.

The latest from Shozu ?

I recently updated my Shozu to the latest release. I have to admit, I'm on the fence with this update. I'm constantly having issues getting uploads to go through (ie. they are all stalled in a queue). The navigation is way diff than the last release and as far as I can tell I can no longer get flickr comments sent to my device - a feature that was awesome! Contacts backup is no longer supported either. See
