300M handsets shipped with Qualcomm’s GPS
Qualcomm today announced to have reached a milestone in the adoption of the company's gpsOne position-location technology - embedded in Qualcomm's wireless chipset - with its integration in more than 300 million cell phones shipped worldwide.

"Qualcomm powers the majority of mobile location services that have been deployed thus far, and this milestone reflects the accelerated expansion of GPS capabilities on mobile handsets using Qualcomm's gpsOne solution," said Jason Bremner, senior director of product management for Qualcomm CDMA Technologies. "We anticipate even stronger growth in the upcoming years as new mobile-based applications such as location-aware shopping, friend finder and community-type location services become more mainstream in consumers' daily lifestyles."
