Intel has decided to jump into the location game. At AppUp! Elements today they annouced that they would be aquiring Telmap, a leading company in navigation and location-based service.
Back in September Telmap was named one of the 50 fastest growing companies in Isreal. The existing user base of Telmap app users is over 5 Million with 28% Android and 23% iOS. Intel is planning on rolling in Telmaps location based APIs into AppUp!. They will work seamlessly across different mobile OSs, different geographies as well as cross operator.
This annoucement is the representative of the location them that Intel has been pushing on to developers over the course of the two day conference.
