Gotive H42 Widescreen GPS
Gotive at CeBIT today has unveiled its one-of-a-kind H42 GPS unit. Core to the design is an exceptionally wide 6.2-inch touchscreen that displays a large map even with a large amount of text information nearby. The long body needed for the design also gives it the distinctive option of turning into a mobile communicator with GSM phone functions built in for either lifting the H42 to your ear or using it as a speakerphone. Suitably, GPRS Internet is also packed in for basic Internet access.
Businesses using the device can also custom-fit the shell with hardware they need in the field, Gotive says: barcode readers, cameras, and dual batteries (among other extensions) can be installed for specialized workers. Pricing isn't listed by the company, but models can be custom-ordered from Gotive in the US and most parts of Europe. [via NaviGadget]
