PC and notebook vendor Acer has launched the e310 - a PDA-like GPS device, featuring dedicated street and road maps of Saudi Arabia and various GCC countries. “The e310 was designed specifically with the end user in mind and is the complete navigation solution that proves that getting from A to B need not be confusing,” stated Mark Prosser, product marketing manager for Acer ME. “This product offers the customers the option of not only navigating the city streets, but also the major highways of the Kingdom and GCC countries.” In terms of performance, the e310 boasts a 300MHz processor and 64Mbytes of integrated RAM. As for battery life, the firm claims the device can run for eight hours straight. On the feature front, the e310 boasts an MP3 player, photo viewer and a standard 2.8-inch LCD touch screen. It also includes a contact manager, which Acer has designed to work with the navigation software; simply select a contact from the machine’s database and the Acer will navigate you straight to it. Additionally, the device features a ‘Pedestrian’ mode for those who like to wander around. The device comes pre-loaded with maps of Saudi Arabia and all other GCC countries (including UAE and Oman) and are provided by Navteq. The 130-gram E310 is on display at the Acer stand at Gitex Saudi Arabia, which kicked off in Riyadh today and goes on until April 19. The e310 is currently available in stores across the region and comes with a car charger and car-mounting kit. It comes with a one-year local and international warranty.
