A few GPS queries

Where is the GPS antenna located on the N97, will it have the same problems with a closed keypad as the N95?

Is the magnetometer output included in the GPS data so that any GPS-aware application will benefit from it?

What is the battery life of the phone when running GPS applications such as Google latitude or SportsTracker?

Can we expect any cool augmented reality applications that make use of the GPS, accelerometer, and the magnetometer, possibly also combined with the camera? With access to an online phone directory it should be possible to simply point the phone at a specific building and receive a list of all people registered at that address, for instance

Appreciate your efforts,
