Provider of the location-based platform and services (they call it “Core Location Platform”), Skyhook Wireless, announced a new client – Samsung, which will use their technology in a range of handsets. First in line is the Bada-powered Wave that will get the “most precise, reliable, and fastest location information available.”
As you probably know, location-based information is at the center of many of today’s popular services. Hence precise location is required feature of today’s mobile devices to enable such services as navigation, local search as well as other location-based services like Foursquare, Gowalla and others.
And that’s basically the news here. Plus we have the words of Samsung’s Vice President of R&D Planning Team, Hyungmoon Noh, who said: “Samsung is committed to delivering the maximum benefits of smartphones for our customers and developer partners. Precise location is central to the mobile experience, and Skyhook’s Core Location will provide Samsung mobile devices with market-leading location capabilities.”
And for the record, Motorola has also announced plans to use Skyhook’s platform for its Android phones.
