wifi can also be used to speed up GPS lock time

My iPad2 seems pretty quick and sensitive to locate a position

If I were to design a wifi+gps enabled device like an ipad I'd exploit the fact that wifi base stations are usually stationary and can provide a clue to the current location, speeding up GPS lock time. Plus you could also implement some of the A-GPS techniques like downloading the current satellite ephemeris over wifi to further speed up GPS locks.

While the WB850 has wifi I'm not sure Samsung has implemented any A-GPS style techniques.
