No, it's not the new iPhone - The Boston Globe

See the full article for more details (including, ultimately, a nod to the iPhone over the Instinct)

Unlike the original iPhone, Instinct was born with built-in GPS. The navigation software is fast and accurate, and even provides highway traffic updates. But the best part is its integration with the Instinct's voice-control system. Press a button on the side and speak a word or two, like "grocery stores." The Instinct hooks up with Microsoft Corp.'s Live Search service to display a list of the nearest supermarkets. Tap the touch screen for audio turn-by-turn driving directions.

The Instinct also uses Sprint's high-speed data network, which runs much faster than the original iPhone's AT&T Inc. data service. The speedier network allows for multimedia services not found on the iPhone, like streaming Internet music channels and live television feeds from CNN and Fox Sports. The video is often pixilated and jerky, but it's adequate for catching the latest headlines.
