Very little is known about the glofiish V900 from E-TEN -- in fact, nothing is known about it other than what we have on this promotional image advertising E-TEN's presence at the GSM Association's Mobile World Congress next month. What few details are revealed here, though, are pretty freakin' notable. The V900 apparently supports DVB-H, DVB-T, T-DMB, and DAB broadcasts, unifying half a world's worth of digital television and radio broadcast standards in a single device.

Nokia N82 - GPS, Applications and Performance
GPS and Nokia Maps
The N82 is the second Nseries model after the N95 to get a built inGPS. Nokia have also considerably improved the implementation since theN95 launch by adding assisted GPS. The N82 also benefits from movingthe GPS aerial from the bottom of the device to the top. The end resultis excellent performance with lock on times from a cold start around30-40 seconds in most cases and just a handful of seconds to reacquirethe signal from a soft start. The phone also holds onto GPS signalsmuch more reliably, be it in urban canyons or heavily vegetated areas. The main built in application to take advantage of the GPS is NokiaMaps. This offers free mapping for 150 countries, with around 40 ofthese also offering routing. Maps can either be downloaded over the airor preloaded using Nokia Maps Loader. The preloading option is veryworthwhile if you are roaming or do not have a flat rate data packageas the size of downloads can quickly add up. A point of information(POI) database, divided into various categories, comes with the maps.The quality of the POIs varies by area; large urban areas are usuallyreasonably well catered for but do not expect comprehensive coverage.The search function is good with support for address (includingpostcode) and keyword based searches, and 'nearby' (nearest POI from aspecified category). Custom locations (e.g. your house) can be saved asLandmarks and then used in routing and navigation.... (read more)
