We have all heard the rumors about whether or not GPS functionality will show up on the new iPhone, but according to GigaOM it is a done deal. Their confirmation is based on two factors: private sources that claim a GPS contract for the iPhone was awarded to Broadcom and legal requirements put in place last year by the FCC regarding Enhanced 911. Even though GigaOM is a reputable source, I'm not ready to buy into iPhone GPS just yet. Sources are sources and I'm pretty sure E911 doesn't even need GPS. [GigaOM]
