Sanyo Gorilla GPS

Concentrating on its Japanese home, Sanyo has announced the NV-HD880FT, a portable GPS unit also known as the Gorilla. Its name derives from its abnormally large touchscreen display, measuring a full eight inches; by contrast, many such units are less than six. Despite a thin bezel, it also manages to incorporate a 30GB hard drive, which can be used to record conventional and 1Seg TV broadcasts the unit tunes in. Dedicated program guide software is included.

The Gorilla also manages to incorporate a DVD player, and can broadcast its audio via an FM transmitter. The unit's main limitation is its screen resolution, which tops out at 480x234. Launch is expected in Japan November 26th, at a cost of 225,750 yen ($1,952); an American version may be possible, but is unlikely due to a need to strip out 1Seg. [via Impress Watch]
