AT&T Will Block Blackberry's GPS

Just read this preposterous thing at BlackberryCool:
Apparently AT&T (or Cingular as they were known until not so long ago and as is still printed on my 8800) are going to cripple the GPS feature in the upcoming Blackberry 8820.
The reason? They don't want the Blackberry to look superior to the iPhone.

If that doesn't make you mad, I don't know what will. They'd still make the GPS available to Telenav - a paid service. But you won't be able to use Google Maps, Blackberry maps etc...
If it were up to me, I'd change providers right now. Alas, mine is a corporate Blackberry.
