Phones That Know Where You Are

What's the point of having a cellphone for emergencies if 911 dispatchers can't figure out where to send the paramedics? By 2005, all cellphones will be required by law to track their location. The first are here, including Samsung's GPS-enabled SPH-N300 and SPH-A460. Meanwhile, the Magnavox MobilePAL+GPS (left, top: $299) is a true emergency phone, with one red button that connects you to emergency services.
