Yeah, since it comes from Verizon, I don't take that as a third party app, but we all know the play on words game! I guess i would be surprised also, but i keep hoping.
Just an observation here, but has anyone noticed that if you go to Verizon Wireless website and look at the new Q it stipulates aGPS for 911 location/ sGPS. Does any one know what sGPS means and does the "/" constitute that its part of the GPS system for 911 or a separate GPS??
Also funny how when you look at the 8830 phone specs on the site NO WHERE does it even mention GPS for even 911 purposes. If Verizon was supposedly only advertising that prior to release for 911 purposes only, then why not list it now under specs, but list a comparable PDA (new Q) with GPS for 911 purposes?! hmmm
