Pontus EN-4500 GPS unit

Asian manufacturer Pontus is preparing the EN-4500, a combination media player and GPS unit. The product is notable not so much for its abilities however as where it is expected to be used -- despite having a 4.3-inch widescreen display, it is not limited to cars, as it is only 1.3 inches thick and can be carried handheld. Graphically it can produce maps in both 2D and fully-textured 3D views, and it is capable of WMV movies and 1Seg digital TV. Supported audio formats include MP3, OGG and WMA; storage is handled mainly through SD cards. Pontus expects to ship the 4500 to Japan for 60,000 yen ($487) by the end of July.
