Acer intros budget-priced V200 GPS unit


It looks like Acer has yet another GPS device destined for parts other than North America, with its new budget-priced V200 model apparently exclusive to France for the time being. This one boasts a decent enough 3.5-inch QVGA display, along with the ever-present SiRF Star III GPS receiver, Samsung's 300 MHz S3C2442XL processor, 64MB RAM, 64MB ROM, and an SD/MMC slot for expansion. You'll also get a a 512MB SD card preloaded maps of France courtesy of Navteq. Nothing too remarkable there, but Acer's hoping the device will make something of a name for itself with its price, which comes in at just under the 150€ (or $200) mark. While there's no word on when we might see a similar model available elsewhere, those in France will apparently be able to get their hands on one any day now.
