Seems like we are on for a bit of rush on mobiles with built in GPS satellite navigation systems. There’s a new model from Mio on the cards, but until then Motorola is claiming it got there first with its clamshell style A780. Moto has sensibly incorporated a large colour touch screen to display the maps which cover the UK and Ireland. If you want to add other European countries you have to invest in another TransFlash memory card.
The phone uses CoPilot Live software to guide users round the country features a 1.3 mega pixel camera with an 8x digital zoom, Bluetooth and quad band reception. Motorola has also announced the V360, a budget clamshell handset with a VGA camera, Bluetooth and push to talk facilities. Both models will be on sale within the month.
