navteq_junctionview.jpgNokia's Navteq digital-mapping subsidiary announced a partnership with Intel to encourage development of location-based services (LBS) software using the Linux-based Moblin platform. A new, Intel-sponsored microsite on the Navteq Network for Developers portal provides resources for those developing LBS software for Atom-based MIDs (mobile Internet devices).

As part of the agreement between the companies, Intel has joined the Navteq partner zone program. This enables the chipmaker to use Navteq Network for Developers (NN4D) as a channel and store front for accessing and distributing LBS products. The main focus for Intel, however, appears to be recruiting LBS application developers to develop on the Moblin MID platform using Navteq map data. At the Intel microsite, NN4D members can access Moblin technical support, software development kits (SDKs), and source code, says Navteq.
