Thanks for sharing the video interview. The Navifone is indeed a nice looking and powerful gadget; I particularly like the large screen (3.5"). If priced competitively, it will definitely give the new iPhone a run for the money.

It is expected to be released at end of Q3 this year... Perhaps by Thanks Giving Day I hope... \:D/ If U R prepared to ooze out USD$799 (professional estimate by another source), I think it is worth waiting for it :mrgreen:
