Does the wi-fi ipad have GPS (not just using wifi to determine location)?

Also, can the 4G ipad use GPS if you don't get a 4G plan (unassisted GPS)?

    The other poster is wrong GPS is builtin to the iPad 2 3G. I have an iPad2 w/3G which I got specifically for the GPS Functionality. I do not have a data plan for the device. So with data disabled and no wifi, out in the boonies, the GPS works just fine. the iPad 2 with wifi only does not have the GPS functionality, as it requires the phone chip. I am not sure if the same is true for the iPad 3 but I would assume so.
