Traveler GPS 525 Review at

Pharos GPS 525 Review “The Pharos GPS 525 is built on a PocketPC Platform. This means that it’s a full-fledged PDA with all the goodness such as integrated Wifi and Bluetooth. When I opened the box, I was surprised too see that the Pharos GPS 525 was much smaller than I thought (109.7mm x 59.4mm x 17.6mm). It’s a very elegant PDA that’s smaller and lighter than my Treo 700w. The only downside is quite obvious: the screen is rather small (2.8”) and depending on where on the dashboard the GPS is, reading the street names might be difficult.” Read this review here:

Review of GSM handset Pantech PG8000

“The phone’s dimensions are rather small (99.8×51.8×16.1 mm), the weight is slightly heavier than 100 grams (106.5 grams). The phone fits nicely into one’s hand, it is convenient to work with, partly due to slightly bigger portion of weight located on the phone’s lower side (in case it’s used in vertical position). It will fit pockets of your jeans nicely. The design is pleasant, those who had seen the phone live liked the outlooks. The phone’s edges are slightly rounded. The model will be sold in two color solutions: black with silver and completely silver. The first edition looks more interesting than the second one, upper panel is made of black varnished plastic, and the lower part is silver. Despite the fact that the upper panel is varnished and easily soiled, the fingerprints are not that obvious. The case is made of qualitative plastic, all details are nicely matched to each other, there’s no backlash at all.” Read this review here:
