GPS vs A-GPS vs Both?

So, in looking at specs for Android phones, I generally use Wikipedia as a starting point to find out the basics and then look for info from there. I've noticed that frequently, phones will be listed as having GPS, A-GPS, or both in their specs.

I'm wondering what the difference between the two is and what advantage or disadvantages there are to having one, the other, or both in a phone?
