Do Fun with your Mobile….

Most GPS are painfully huge in size. But not so for the Freedom Mini GPS. As big as your car keys, this little GPS is perfect for those of us that have a non-GPS smartphone.

“The Freedom Mini GPS currently the world’s most compact and neatest GPS receiver is aimed directly at the ever increasing number of users of SmartPhones and BlackBerrys (150 million will be sold in 2007.) Only about 10-15% of the new devices will have GPS built in, e.g. the 8800 BlackBerry, but all the Pearl and older models have no GPS.”
