GPS on a standard mobile phone

Recommended Posts

Blue Sky squeezes GPS onto a SIM | The Register

Apparently a company have managed to fit a GPS receiver onto a SIM card. This means at some point they should be able to equip standard mobile phones with GPS functionality. So you can find location specific content on your phone, call up maps and directions etc, find the nearest takeaway. Cool. *

*I know they've had similar services already, but they've been pretty innacurate and based on which mast you're taking your signal from I believe. So you just get a big list of items within a mile or so of you.
