Default GPS Mistake for 8700g on RIM?

Please Login to Remove!

Not sure where this post should go so feel free to move it around...

So I was on RIM, specifically here, and I wanted to see what the 8800 had over my 8700g. Well, as I am scrolling down and trying to see the differences, I saw that RIM says my 8700g is GPS-Enabled. Can someone elaborate? Ever since I got my 8700g I have never read anywhere that it had GPS...

I wanted to attach a screencap but the file size limitations are too strict. So just check out the comparison yourself...



Again, LINKY

I'm not sure exactly what you're referring to, but the 8700g does support bluetooth GPS devices. The 8703e is the only 8700 with a GPS receiver.

The product spec page on the Blackberry site is what sandman2nd is referring to.

ok, if they mean it "supports gps devices", that's cool. it looked like as if they were stating it HAS gps hardware already.
