If QUALCOMM has anything to say about it, our GPS and location services will be much more accurate shortly. The company has announced that its Snapdragon S2 and S3 platforms now support Russian GLONASS and GPS satellites. That means there are twice as many satellites to provide your location.
The time to get a location fix will be shorter and the fix will be more accurate too. The satellites will find you within 2 meters. The QUALCOMM chips will know when they need to turn on GLONASS to save battery life.
Qualcomm says that the feature for GLONASS might not be activated by all vendors so people will need to check with the maker on individual devices. The first phone to have the dual capability is the Galaxy S II

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
