Jaty Leisure Navi-Phone

Jaty on Wednesday surprised a few of its larger challengers with the GPS-L2000, also known as the Leisure Navi-Phone. Its nickname points to its features, the company says: the device has a true GPS unit that not only offers driving directions but also mapping for hikes, sailing, and even golf. An optional DMB receiver also picks up digital over-the-air TV shows. Control is made relatively easy through a 3.2-inch touchscreen that makes GPS more intuitive and replaces a bulkier physical keypad for dialing.

Currently available only in Korea, the Navi-Phone is available from carrier LG Telecom for $590 US in addition to a $6 monthly fee for updated map info from the cell provider. [via AVING]
