Skyhook Scores Sony Deal

3/3/11

Boston-based Skyhook Wireless announced this week that its location-finding technology will be embedded in Sony Computer Entertainment’s forthcoming “NGP” handheld gaming system, which will roll out in late 2011. Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed, but the news comes on the heels of some other recent customer wins for Skyhook, including Intel and Citysearch. Skyhook’s software blends Wi-Fi, cellular, and GPS data to provide a fast location reading for mobile devices.
