Transystem i-Blue 757 GPS

Made by Taiwan's Transystem, the i-Blue 757 is a GPS receiver with an unusual clamshell design, the lid revealing a solar panel. Using the solar technology can extend battery life from 30 hours to as much as 100. The device can be recharged with or without the panel. Another unique feature is the Bluetooth connection, which can be set to a mode dubbed "permanent standby" -- the connection will stay dormant at the cost of a little more power, but can be awakened and running in seconds by using a separate Bluetooth device, such as a notebook, pocket PC or smartphone. The i-Blue will go back to sleep when the connection is closed. No information is available on pricing or distribution outside of Taiwan.
