Vodafone Foursquare Partnership Expands to Australia, Portugal The Vodafone – Foursquare partnership expanded under-the-radar beyond the UK in June, with the geolocation startup now featured by Vodafone in Australia and Portugal. As in the UK, the partnership isn’t about new features or deep integration, it’s about Vodafone showcasing Foursquare to its millions of subscribers. In the Portugal deal announced last week, Foursquare is now featured on Vodafone Portugal’s mobile portal (My Portal or Vodafone live!) and users can get a link to foursquare.com/mobile by sending a free text message with the text ’4square’ to 12345. A Foursquare app will also be highlighted in Vodafone’s App 360 store (not sure if that is Apple, Android or something else).

Vodafone’s purchase two years ago of Wayfinder for 230 million Swedish crowns (roughly $31 million USD) to backbone its location services is now, brace yourself, being given away! Your eyes don’t deceive, Vodafone has made almost all Wayfinder code available via open source. According to Vodafone’s internet director Pieter Knook, “Given our decision to stop developing turn by turn location based services as part of our core business, it seemed an obvious choice to make the code we own open source. We look forward to seeing its continued use in all sorts of different applications in the future.” Vodafone plots course for Wayfinder by giving it away free!

Droid from Verizon Wireless Get things done. Perform the tasks you need to with software that makes sense. No useless add-ons. No bloat. No distractions.
From chip makers to mobile phone giants to tiny upstarts, location-based services are seen as the wireless world’s pot of gold. Among those looking to dip into that pot is Geodelic, a Santa Monica, Calif.-based startup that this week announced $3.5 million in funding from Clearstone Venture Partners and Shasta Ventures. Even more impressive is the fact that Geodelic has partnered with T-Mobile to offer an LBS application known as Sherpa on the the company’s myTouch phone. Unlike other mapping applications, Geodelic’s technology customizes your location search according to your interests and preferences. According to Geodelic: Brings Serendipity to Location – GigaOM

Owners of T-Mobile's G1 phone might be getting the latest version of Google's Android operating system, if rumors are to be believed. The rumor, credited to an "anonymous source," says that G1 owners will get an over-the-air update to the Eclair build — either Android 2.0 or perhaps even the latest Android 2.1 build on the Nexus One (a.k.a. Google Phone). If true, it would be welcome news for G1 owners, who increasingly feel left behind with the release of the Droid and imminent launch of the Nexus One. Nonetheless, the sourcing is weak on this one: A single anonymous source on an unofficial Android blog doesn't instill 100 percent confidence. Android 2.0 Coming to T-Mobile G1 [RUMOR]
