3GSM - Nokia introduces new GPS module

Nokia is introducing a GPS (Global Positioning System) module for some if its mid-range handsets that can tag a user's position to within five meters to allow for navigation services, it announced on Friday.

The Nokia GPS Module LD-3W, scheduled to ship by the end of this quarter, will work with some of Nokia's Bluetooth-enabled phones, such as the S60 series, the 6230i and 6280. It is sold separately and connects with the phone via Bluetooth, said Benjamin Lampe, a Nokia spokesman.

The device is expected to retail for about Euro 110 (US$132), excluding taxes and any operator subsidies, Lampe said. Offering the module as an add-on for its mid-range handsets will help bring GPS capabilities to a wider audience, according to Nokia.

Using mapping software from companies like Wayfinder Systems or Telmap, the GPS device will find the easiest route to a destination, Nokia said. The module will be shown off at the 3GSM World Congress conference next week in Barcelona.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
