Sirf, OpenWave, Nec & A-GPS, LBS at 3GSM

With an opening salvo for the 3GSM World Congress 2007 in Barcelona, Spain Sirf shot a round of PR's where it first announced in partnership with NEC the:

"[...] successful completion of assisted-GPS (A-GPS) interoperability testing in London on a commercial GPRS/WCDMA [UMTS] network"
Then, in a second PR Sirf announces that OpenWave will now license and sell its SirfLoc Location Server for Assisted-GPS based networks. This will help the integration of
"Openwave's Location Manager with SiRF's SiRFLoc Multimode location server"
It also announced a partnership with SkyHook where it offers a "hybrid GPS/Wi-Fi location technology" covered in a third PR. Also in GigaOm a while ago.

For lack of PR's a fourth one gives you the whole enchilada plus OpenWave shows what it came for on its own PR.
