ROB PEGORARO - To compete with cellphones, these cameras try to do it all:

The benefits of GPS capability [on a point and click camera] aren't as clear. All cameras suffer a performance lag compared with phones, which can use nearby wireless signals to approximate their position quickly. (Eye-Fi's Explore SD Card, which records nearby WiFi signals for later matching up with a database of WiFi signals , worked faster for the same reason.)
