      I am excited by this, this is the future !

      I know that sounds corny but having the internet knowledge linked into a map and at your finger tips is the best thing ever

      free to users but costly to be on the results of the map search but that's the new business world, imagine searching for a vegetarian restaurant and then navigating to it, the restaurant is alerted that you are coming and what your order is, they know when you are walking in the door so they know when to have your food/table ready !

        This only works on an android phone right? Can you talk while using it?

        If not it won't appeal to any of the GPS users I know.

              Not exactly sure what you mean. The phone multi-tasks, so you can have the GPS screen up while it plays an MP3 in the background. You can also make/receive calls or do anything else the phone does. Not sure how the turn-by-turn works while on a call though :icon_lol:

              or did you mean voice-recognition?

                          i wonder what the price will be to get this phone on an exsisting contract.

                            All the users of GPS that I know are women. They want to be able to look at the map and, at the same time, talk to others about how to get where they are going.

                            Plus I think GPS for getting where you are going is for girls. :D

                              I use my GPS everyday, for work. I go to tons of houses. I know my way around in my area, but definitely not to some random customers house.
