This is not true.
Google Maps is not GPS only. Starting with version 2.0, it will use cell tower triangulation on devices that do not have active GPS receivers.
To my knowledge, BlackBerry Maps doesn't use cell tower triangulation at all. With BBMaps, you either use GPS for location, or nothing at all.
