More phones to get GPS

Posted on Thursday, October 12 2006 @ 00:48:29 CEST by

EE Times reports more and more phones will get GPS functionality:
After years of anticipation, global positioning system (GPS) technology should finally arrive in a significant number of GSM mobile handsets in 2007, according to a new study by market research analyst ABI Research. The report also concludes that 25 percent of WCDMA handsets will incorporate GPS by the end of 2008, ABI said Tuesday (Oct. 9).

Alan Varghese, ABI principal analyst, cites several factors for the expected rise of GPS in GSM and WCDMA handsets. Among these factors are government regulations covering location technology for emergency services—such as the FCC-mandated E911 in the U.S.—as well as a recognized demand for location-based services (LBS), according to Varghese.
