GPS Phones Round Up

GPS cell phone is no doubt going to enhance our mobile experience. While Google and Apple are working on amazing technologies utilizing cell towers and wifi ip addresses to pinpoint your location over data, it still can not out perform the robustness of a well integrated GPS receiver in your phone. Put aside each telecom carrier's hidden agenda (charging for GPS service), lets gather a list of GPS-enabled phones that are available on the market today (2/14/2008). I'll attempt to manage this entry as days go on and keep it on the reference link on the right hand side for my readers. (Side Note: Its amazing that Cingular, Tmobile, do not have GPS in its Shop by Feature as I was researching for this project, this is severely under-estimating its attraction to consumers).

Verizon Navigator doesn't use GPS, right?

I am not a Verizon customer so I am not familiar with their products (in other words, I don't have a Verizon GPS phone) but according to their site, it is based on GPS positioning, you just have to pay for usage which is a total rip off.

"VZ Navigator uses GPS positioning to tell you where you are, what's nearby, and to give you directions - quickly and easily."
