Global GPS hardware in line for replacement

The new hardware may still be sitting on the launch pad, but the upgrade to the GPS system is under way (reports the LA Times).

I'm wondering what role the Galileo system is playing here. Competition as driving force? :-) Also wondering how soon we will see Galileo-enabled mobile phones...
