The evolution of technology allow us today to extent the “location based services” to fine grained services and allow any mobile user to create location based information and make it available to anyone interested. This evolution open the way for new services and applications for the mobile users. In this paper we present two novel mobile and wireless collaborative services and concepts, the Hovering Information, a mobile, geo-referenced content information management system, and the QoS Information service, providing user observed end-to-end infrastructure geo-related QoS information.
