New GPS Doubles As MP3 Player

Personal Tech Pipeline

TomTom today unveiled a new gadget that combines GPS and MP3 functionality.

The device, called the TomTom GO 910, also features multi-continental map coverage including the whole of Europe, the USA and Canada -- the first portable device to offer that, according to the company.

TomTom GO 910 features a 4-inch LCD touch screen, 20 GB of storage, and a sophisticated text-to-speech engine that reads directions and other information to the user in spoken English (and other languages).

It also comes with software called TomTom HOME, which users can install on a PC and use to manage, download and store content from their computer on the device.

The company says it has dramatically upgraded and improved its TomTom PLUS service, which features "Voices," traffic, weather, and safety cameras and now also offers audiobooks and "Buddies." GPS performance has also been improved.

The company also announced the TomTom GO 710 and TomTom GO 510, which are similar units but without built-in MP3 functionality. They can, however, control an Apple iPod if you plug one into one of the units.

All new three models will be available April 1, according to the company.

Sort of. We'll see.
No! It's too big for a pocket and too small for real computing. What's the point?
