Skyhook Wireless, the very provider of the Core Location Platform, has announced recently that Samsung will be deploying their technology throughout several Samsung mobile devices. Samung Wave, namely the S8500 model, will be the first that will embed
Skyhook algorithms, and will provide customers a much better experience with location-aware applications.
“Samsung is committed to delivering the maximum benefits of smartphones for our customers and developer partners,” said Hyungmoon Noh, Vice President of R&D Planning Team at Samsung Electronics at Samsung. “Precise location is central to the mobile experience, and Skyhook’s Core Location will provide Samsung mobile devices
with market-leading location capabilities.”
Location-aware software will be faster, more precise and clearly more reliable by using geo-location, which stands at the base of many mobile innovations and is one of the fundamental technology for several emerging mobile services. Having a precise location capability, the enabled mobile device can allow users to find close concert halls, exhibitions or just get precise directions to their destination of choice.
"Samsung creates innovative mobile platforms and user experiences,” said Michael Shean, Founder & SVP, Business Development, Skyhook Wireless. "Skyhook is thrilled to further enhance the Samsung smartphone experience
with superior location accuracy and availability on Samsung bada and other platforms.”
