Magellan Triton handhelds

GPS specialist Magellan has announced an upcoming series of handheld receivers, the Tritons. Each has a full-color touchscreen, but other highlights are distributed throughout the series, such as barometers, two-megapixel cameras and LED flashlights. Maps of the United States, meanwhile, are being supplied by National Geographic, marking the first time the company has sold its data for handheld use.

There are six models in total: the highest-end version is the Triton 2000, which includes all of the possible options as well a 2.7-inch QVGA screen, plus an SD slot and a speaker and microphone combo. The price for the 2000 will be set at $499.

The middle-range 500 unit, to be priced at $249, scales the screen down to 2.2 inches, and further omits the camera and flashlight. The least expensive unit will be the 200, which additionally strips out the barometer and SD slot, and switches the power source to two AA batteries. Its cost is forecast at $129. All six Triton receivers should ship to the US in September, with a European release to follow the next month.
