    As has been previously discussed on WMExperts, all modern CDMA phones on Sprint and Verizon have Qualcomm’s gpsOne chipset in them for e911 purposes and they have also been used for 3rd party services like TeleNav, offering GPS services directly to the consumer via the carrier. Part of the reason why the carriers want to charge for these services, besides the obvious, is to recoup the cost of being forced to implement the e911 initiative, something that we all help pay every month (e911 tax). This may also be the motivation for why Sprint legally threatened the developer of Mobile Gmaps, who offered a free aGPS mapping solution to Sprint customers.

    Small Update:

    eCare at Sprint appears to be be stating that the

    ...first scheduled software update for the Touch is in late January 2008, though we don't yet know what issues that update will address.
    Presumably if this aGPS information is accurate then the Mogul and Touch will be getting updated around the same time.
