IFA 2006: Philips to enter GPS satellite navigation market
In something of as surprise move Philips has announced that intends to enter the satellite navigation system market in early 2007. It will offer what it calls ‘personal navigation systems’ that are much designed for user on foot as they are for cars. The devices will also deliver location specific information – though the company hasn’t yet said how. This could be via FM, Wi-Fi, 3G or even a mixture of all three.
