GPS phones

  SKYPE 17:25 PM 14 Jun 09

Are there any phones that have half way decent gps systems in them? I have a Nokia n95, and a O2 orbit. They both take about 10 minute to get a signal. These phones are kind of old. I hope technology has improved since 2yrs ago. I am hoping for something that can get a signal in less than 1 minute. I use gps for walking mostly.

I have just bought the new iphone and its gps is cool, along with the compass :). the lock is strong and the map rotates as you face in different directions. Great toy :).

and for the better.

My T-Mobile G1 has superb GPS with Google maps, an amazing compass, a bar-code reader that tells you where you can buy the same item in other shops nearby, a 'night sky' applet that shows you what the stars look like in any part of the sky where you point the phone, a spirit level (you never know), and any number of gizmos that can be downloaded and installed from the Android market site.

I have unlimited fast internet access, and all my email is pushed to the phone every ten minutes. I can make notes, run my diary, be woken up, reminded, told the time anywhere on the planet, play movies, and oh yes.....make and receive calls and text messages.

I have a superb keyboard and touch screen with fingertip rolling through my contacts, call logs and emails. The phone updates its own firmware and software automatically.

All this in a device that slips easily into a shirt pocket.
