iPhone comes to Egypt without GPS functions

Interesting to see that Apple are compromising on the feature set of the iPhone in some countries. From MacNN:
Notable is that functionality of the iPhone has been artificially restricted in the country, as the Egyptian government has placed a ban on GPS devices. The country is not the first to offer iPhones with limitations; in India the phone lacks 3G functionality, and it is believed that a Chinese version could be stripped of both 3G and Wi-Fi.
