Does the Moment have "Compass" hardware..?..?

The Hero has the ability to use the Compass in Android Market; will the Moment have the same hardware capability? I'm not referring to GPS either... (=

It uses an accelatometer and a promixity senor, the same as Hero. My guess would be yes.

How does the proximity sensor and accelerometer translate to a functional compass?

Proximity seems to me like the phone locking when you get it close to your face to prevent cheek presses

Accelerometer seems something with accelerating..speeding up..etc.

I honestly have no clue how the Hero does it, but figured some magnetic sensitve electronic chip of sorts...

Maybe I'm way off on my assumptions for what those words mean...hahah!

Proximity sensor and accelerometer have nothing to do with the compass as far as I know. And the Hero doesn't have a proximity sensor; it has a light sensor. There's a difference.
