    Was messing around and decided to call my friends cellphone to see what they are doing. I noticed that during call, under the all time it tells you there GPS location. If you get your phone test it out. I might not be accurate with landlines but seems fair with cellphones. Not sure if this was on previous or current android phones.

    I would imagine the caller (on the other end) would have to have GPS enabled for this to work accurately, otherwise you'd just be going off cell tower location.

    Either way it's cool, but creepy at the same time.

    The touchwiz ui does present some neat new features, although not very refined.

    I really like the panorama shot feature on the galaxy s series.

    Example, from a person over at XDA:

    Gps location

    Does it give the city or actual addresses or road names?
    This could just be the trial of "CityID". I would imagine that is the case.
    I HONESTLY dont know for sure, but I'd like some confirmation of this, if possible.

    That is funny. Most of my friends don't mind me knowing were they are. Hilarious how many of you think that is a bad thing.

    The city and state that it lists is also what corresponds to where the phone is registered at not where they currently are located at.
