More on the latest location services for BlackBerry

Comments

The latest location services from RIM offer some great implications for BlackBerry apps.

The latest location services from RIM use cell tower triangulation to help with location based apps. Using cell tower triangulation, you can get location services inside a building where you wouldn’t normally get a GPS signal.

Another feature of the new location services is that it leverages a community generated database of information. An example of this is pictured above where a map displays all the available cell towers around the Marriott Marquis in San Francisco.

For a good example of an app that leverages these new services, check out Loopt in App World.
