We recently got some one-on-one time with this new portable GPS device
due next year. The unit is powered by Navigon
's new GPS software, and you can color us impressed. Officially titled "Fujitsu's Pocket LOOX, Directed by NAVIGON," the cute little Pocket LOOX N100 runs Navigon's fancy new MobileNavigator|6 Premium, and is based on a 300MHz Samsung processor and SiRF Star III chip. The 2.8-inch QVGA screen is bright and colorful, and there's 64MB of RAM, along with a miniSD card slot to keep things interesting. The main functionality outside of GPS is MP3, WMA, AAC playback and a couple of games -- no PMP wares to see here -- but the actual GPS software is pretty dang slick and feature-filled. The best news is that all of this takes place in a quite portable 3.5 ounce form factor, and while the $500 pricetag is pretty hard to justify, there's no arguing with the sexy here. We should be seeing more of this unit at CES, with a March '07 launch date to follow. Keep reading for some more pics.
