Samsung this week unveiled a new phone, the Samsung Jet, boasting a Samsung proprietary operating system and presented as “smarter than a smartphone”. Samsung Jet indeed supports key smartphone’ software features such as multi-task manager and Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync.
In addition, the Jet integrates on-board navigation software from Route66 and GyPSii’s location-based social network.
On the hardware side the phone has all the bells and whistles of any other high end “smart” phones such as a 5 megapixel camera, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and A-GPS packed into a small (108.8 x 53.5 x 11.9 mm) and elegant casing.
At the CommunicAsia tradeshow GPS Business News was given a demonstration of the navigation software which features 3D landmarks from the NAVTEQ map data.
