Holux's newest offering sports a lightweight, near-borderless design that's sure to draw a smile from aesthetics gurus, while the longevous battery life should keep even the most long-winded trekkers on track. The GPSmile 52 Car Navigator should feel right at home on a dashboard or in a hiker's palm, as the 9.5 x 7.7 x 2.2-centimeter enclosure and 6.3-ounces of heft shouldn't pose too much of a burden on the average weary traveler either way. The device is powered by a modest 200MHz Centrality Atlas processor and boasts a SiRF Star III antenna, 3.5-inch touchscreen, 32MB of NAND flash memory, 64MB of RAM, integrated speaker, SD slot, MP3 playback, USB 2.0 port, and a PDF / JPEG file viewer. Although no fancy connectivity options like WiFi or Bluetooth are found here, Holux claims "8 to 10" hours of realizable battery life from the rechargeable 2600 mAh Li-ion cell, which would be fairly impressive if it refrains from erupting in your hand. Although we aren't sure of details concerning pricing or availability, we don't expect the GPSmile 52 to deviate too far from all its oh-so-similar competitors when it hits store shelves.
