ASUS R300, R700 GPS

Bolstering the ranks of companies with handheld GPS/media player devices, ASUS has disclosed details on two new navigators, the R300 and R700. The R700 (pictured) has a 4.3-inch touchscreen, with 64 of RAM, 128MB of ROM and a 400MHz Samsung CPU; in terms of media, it should handle AAC, MP3 and WMA music files, along with MPEG-4 (H.263) video. Other highlights include microSD, Bluetooth 2.0 and the ability to receive SMS messages, but its distinguishing feature is a built-in RDS-TMC receiver for traffic data. Users can also tune in and control FM radio.

The R300 is virtually identical, but omits the RDS-TMC receiver, and shrinks the touchscreen down to 3.5 inches. Both the 300 and 700 should be released to Europe in November. [via Unwired View]
