N95 & Indy

Nokia launched something that is worth giving a note about: the newest member of their NSeries, the N95.

[Update: This BW article says that Nokia will use a GPS "transceiver" chip from Texas Instruments. In that case, it will depend on PDE server backhome.]

It says "integrated GPS" but nowhere to be seen the chip that makes that happen. So I'm guessing it uses Assisted GPS for now. It would be their first model with true GPS.

The good thing is that you get the maps acquired through the acquisition of gate5.

In another news, GPS World pointed to Indy pilots sharing their cars position, velocity and other stats while in the race through GPS with technology developed by the Canadian RaceF/X.
