Pocket LOOX GPS

Fujitsu-Siemens is touting its new Pocket LOOX N100 as both a useful GPS unit and as a truly portable media player. The N100 uses a 2.8-inch touchscreen instead of the more commonplace 3.5-inch display. This shrinks the system to a size that can fit on a keychain, the company says. It maintains the same features as larger models and can track multiple potential routes as well as thousands of points of interest. However, Fujitsu-Siemens notes, the N100's compact size makes it a superior portable media player. Support for AAC, MP3, and WMA songs is possible simply by transferring songs from a computer via USB, giving the hybrid device compatibility with both Mac and Windows systems. A 1GB miniSD card is bundled with the system and comes preloaded with maps of the GPS unit's native Europe. The N100 is shipping today for 250 ($472 US) after tax.
