Sprint and a new start up company called GPShopper have announced the release of Slifter a mobile local search application that employs GPS to find products at neighboring retail locations.

buy or simply wondered what store nearest to you had the latest hot new product?

- How much is it?
- Where is the nearest store where I can buy it?

- How do I get there?
All this plus product images and maps to nearby stores. Slifter also lets you
text products to friends and family so they can add them to their Slifter shopping lists.
