At the moment, the only thing we know is that the hardware supports it. Wether it is is disabled in software is another matter, and if it turns out it is then I will change it.
The only thing I would say about the LG Optimus G is that no one has confirmed it doesn't support it either. As it is in the hardware, it may just be something people don't mention as no one outside of the tech community has heard of it. Also, it may sound a little racist, but if you tell most non-technical westerners that their phone is using a satellite navigation system design and operated by the Russian government, they may see it as a turn off. Sad, but true.
Very interesting, thanks.
I hadn't thought about the possibility that mentioning GLONASS in specs could be considered something negative.
For me, living in Scandinavia, GLONASS makes a huge difference in gps precision, so getting a phone without it would be just silly.
When do you think the first nexus 4's are in the hands of xda people? So that we can get a confirmation using gps test?
