GPS feature big on mobile phones, oh yeah, they can make voice calls and text too

Here's a Web article stating the oh-so-obvious: One of the most useful things a cell phone can do is give you GPS location.

See:

Cell Phones Give Location

Here's a quote:

 Now, majority of GPS receivers 
 are built into mobile phones, 
 with varying degrees of coverage 
 and user accessibility. 
 Commercial navigation software 
 is available for most 21st 
 century smartphones as well as 
 some Java-enabled phones that 
 allows them to use an internal 
 or external GPS receiver.
Wow. That's really big news. (face palm) Next thing we know, the Web site at stating-the-obvious.com, is going to tell us that the Internets will bring us news, sports, and entertainment right to our fingertips.
