Hitachi intros GPS-packing W53H cellphone


Hitachi's no stranger to GPS-laden cellphones, and it now looks to be upping the ante even further, with it recently introducing a new phone that seemingly aims to replace your car's GPS entirely. As with its previous W51H model, the new W54H phone (also called the "Wooo") sports a reasonably-sized screen (2.8-inches in this case) that's able to flip around and cover up the keypad, along with 2 megapixel camera, a microSD slot, and a 1seg TV receiver. That mobile TV should look especially good on the phone's OLED screen, as it apparently boasts a 10,000:1 contrast ratio. As you can see, it also comes with a stand to prop it up for easier viewing in your car, and the GPS software boasts voice input so you can keep your hands on the wheel. No word on pricing or availability just yet, but you can no doubt guess where it won't be available.
