Intel acquires location services provider Telmap

US: Intel has acquired Israeli navigation and location services provider Telmap. The acquisition is part of the company’s strategy to grow its software and services portfolio in a meaningful and multi-platform way, where there won’t be too much market consolidation on the consumer side, and the app developer side will be given a richer set of tools to work with.
For Intel AppUp developers, the acquisition means that Telmap’s APIs for mapping, navigation and location-based search, social and advertising will soon be available for integration into their apps; and that the integration of location into apps will require fewer layers of licensing.
“Telmap isn’t just a great consumer service provider – with Telmap we can directly provide developers with location-based services spanning devices, operating systems and CPU architectures. This is a significant step towards the Intel AppUp services vision we spoke about yesterday,” AppUp GM Peter Biddle said.
