Qualcomm Incorporated now has product support for the Russian GLONASS satellite system.

Good news for GLONASS users...
Qualcomm Incorporated (NASDAQ: QCOM) now has product support for the Russian GLONASS satellite system and the capability to use both the GPS and GLONASS networks simultaneously for greater location performance. The additional signals from this expanded satellite network provide more accurate location information for the growing number of location based applications and services. The first GLONASS capable phone is the MTS 945 from ZTE, powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon MSM7x30™ chipset. The Snapdragon MSM7x30 chipset and software solution allows this smartphone to take advantage of both the GPS and GLONASS (a worldwide satellite positioning system developed by the Russian government) satellite systems. Support for both satellite networks is currently integrated into Qualcomm’s Snapdragon MSM7x30 chipset and software solution and will be supported moving forward on select Snapdragon and feature phone chipsets with Qualcomm’s latest GPS engine.
