Onboard memory is 2GB, which can be used to store photos and music files (MP3/WMA) as well as maps; this capacity can also be expanded with through an SD slot. LG claims up to four hours of battery life, and the device offers a number of other standard features such as voice guidance and flipping between 2D and 3D views. Amazon is selling the 735 for a reduced price of $350. [via NaviGadget]
