Nov 18, 2004, 10:27 AM by (staff)
Motorola yesterday announced an agreement with Qualcomm to offer Motorola's VIAMOTO phone software and service on Qualcomm's BREW platform. Previously available in the U.S. only on iDEN phones, VIAMOTO is a location-based service (LBS) that offers turn-by-turn directions, navigational information, and local information. Motorola will also release a set of BREW extensions that will allow developers to integrate VIAMOTO functionality into their own BREW software. The software is expected to be available to consumers during the first half of 2005. Verizon Wireless, Alltel, and U.S. Cellular are major U.S. carriers that have adopted BREW.
Does this mean my 710 will be able to turn into a GPS?
So does this mean even the the 710 only has agps that it will be able to be used for gps based driving directions as well?
I hope that this technology is software based and backwards compatible!
