Actually, from some particular point in time I can't remember, all new
cellphones in the U.S. are mandated to be GPS-equipped with the location
given to 911 and similar services.
This doesn't necessarially mean that there will be any user-visible
interface to this, though.

Really? Don't all the more recent 900-series Docomo phones also have

well, as well as a PDF viewer which is not so great.
