First U.S. Phone to Add GPS Data to Photos

by Bruce Stewart

Our friends over at Makezine noticed that the new Sanyo MM-7500 and MM-9000 cell phones being sold by Sprint in the U.S. have the capability to add GPS coordinates to the EXIF metadata for photos taken with these phones. This would make these the first camera phones in this country with this functionality. Eric from PhoneScoop has the scoop on how to enable this feature on the Samsung phones, and notes that in Japan, where they've had this capability for awhile, there's neat photo services that let you organize your photos by where you took them. I sense a moblogging/Google maps mash-up coming soon...
