Have Phone, Will Not Get Lost

For all the talk of setting up expensive E911 systems and other location-based technologies for mobile phones, it’s looking more and more like GPS might be finding it’s way into the mobile phone location picture. Reuters is running an article talking about the trend of GPS systems getting cheaper and better all the time – to the point where they’re now starting to show up in mobile phones. It seems like yet another technology that is being driven by the ground up – and will find new uses over time. Just like a camera phone opens up plenty of new possibilities for end-users, having a GPS system always in your pocket changes some aspect of how you communicate. As people become more accustomed to using such systems, there will be some exciting new uses of it – well beyond what people are probably expecting.
