This from Skyhook wireless as Dell prepares to start (finally) rolling out laptops with pre-installed location-provisioning. This information comes via Skyhook wireless… The Dell Wireless 700 location solution includes the hybrid GPS and Wi-Fi Positioning location engine from Skyhook Wireless (www.skyhookwireless.com), the same engine deployed on tens of millions of Apple iPhones and iPod Touch devices. Initially two apps will be offered with the Dell Wireless 700 location solution: CoPilot and the Loki Dashboard. CoPilot is a fully functionally navigation application giving turn-by-turn driving directions as well as local search of key points of interest like. The Loki Dashboard is a web portal that uses the netbook’s location engine to customize widgets for news, weather, tweets, photos, events and people around you. Dell Wireless 700 location solution owners can easily access the Loki Dashboard via Internet Explorer on the netbook (dell.loki.com).See more over on the Dell blog
