WiFiSLAM company has developed an application that allows to smartphones inside buildings. The company uses satellites that provide the exact location. WiFiSLAM company appointed a small group of Google
engineers are composed of former graduates of Stanford University. This is a logical acquisition in order to compete with Google in the mapping that it is weaker there. Due to the fact that Google recently offered navigation services within buildings, such as museums, shopping centers and historical sites, it combines Apple’s technology WiFiSlam its maps service.

Let’s forget about Android or iOS for awhile and focus on BlackBerry OS. RIM has announced that developers can start submitting their application early 2013 but now seems like thing is going on smoothly and it starts accepting BlackBerry 10 app now.
So for developers who have done their jobs with their app, they can start the submission today. Of course it will be busy day now. First come first served. However it is quite clear that RIM will make some change with its device to full touchscreen leaving the tradition QWERTY space.
However with current competition period with Android and iOS, RIM do not expect huge submission. Talking a bit about Android, Google also has wowed developers to focus on compatibility of each app on tablet since it usually won’t work well on tablet as it is on smartphone due to bigger screen and features. Google has launched Tablet App Quality Checklist.
We are waiting to see further strategies from RIM to compete with Android and iOS.
