Amaryllo Purity GPS

Amaryllo on Friday heralded its new Purity GPS receiver for Bluetooth-equipped cellphones and other handhelds. The seemingly nondescript adapter is the first to launch with the low-power edition of the popular SiRFstar III GPS chip: although still capable of communicating with as many as 20 different satellites to find its position, the chip shrinks power consumption dramatically. One charge of the lithium-ion battery should provide 15 hours of use and a full month when on standby, Amaryllo says. The Purity ships next month in Europe for $118; no American resellers have been announced, though the device is FCC-certified for the US. [Via NaviGadget]
