Motorola Ditches Google Location Services

In a recent development, Motorola has announced that it is replacing Google location services in a vast majority of its devices with Skyhook location services.

Skyhook, which is already used in Apple’s iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, triangulates your location by using a large grid of WiFi hotspots. According to Motorola’s press release, this will provide Motorola Android devices with more accurate location based services for apps such as Yelp, Foursquare and Maps.
