GigaOM is carrying the story about SkyHook's WiFi positioning technology will be integrated into SiRF's next generation GPS chips.
What this means is that hardware devices will be able to use a single solution to get both GPS Satellite positioning as well as WiFi positioning, essentially providing both a clear sky and urban-canyon/indoor positioning solution.
Therefore, these devices will be able to rely on positioning regardless of the visibility of the user to the sky - and provide LBS with a higher reliability.
There's no word on when the first devices (looks like an iRiver media player) will roll out - or what their interface to applications will look like (single "what is my location?" queries?), but whatever it is, it will no doubt be very exciting.
