Celrun FDN-2700 GPS TV
Celrun promised a multi-talented device on Friday with its upcoming FDN-2700 GPS unit. While a 7-inch touchscreen mapping system designed primarily for cars, the system also incorporates a tuner for both digital TV from DMB-based channels and digital radio from DAB stations and will even display the entertainment alongside navigation to keep one from interrupting the other. The receiver also accepts TPEG terrestrial broadcasts for live traffic alerts. An SD card slot loads map information and serves as a loading point for MP3 songs.
Listed only as "coming soon," no prices or launch dates have been made available. The 2700 is likely to remain in its native Korea without significant changes. The company has not explained the choice of an Apple logo for its media playback section. [via AVING]
