After BigAdda and BigFlicks comes Reliance’s next venture – BIGMaps.

The site is not yet up, but a look at whois.org gets you the following results:

Reliance Big Entertainment Pvt. Ltd., Manav Sethi (linkedin profile), +91.9323145122, Fax: +91.2230385599, Reliance Centre, Ballard Estate,19, Walchand Hirachand Marg
MUMBAI, MAHARASHTRA, 400001,IN’

Given that there are tons of other services, from Y! and G, it would be interesting to see what differentiator can BIGMaps bring in?

I would like to believe that Reliance will leverage it’s strong understanding and presence in the local market.

Instead of taking the regular data partnership route, they can use their muscle + deep pockets to hire hundreds of people, load them with GPS devices and geocode the Indian cities.

Only if, they don’t walk @ ‘chintee‘ speed!

What’s your take?
