Our round-up of the latest 10 smart phones featuring GPS

  • i-mate Ultimate 9502
    Equipped with an excellent VGA display and a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, this slightly chunky unit is one of the first units in Australia to offer HSUPA. Just remember that you’ll need to pay extra for GPS navigation software. Read the full review at i-mate Ultimate 9502
  • RIM BlackBerry 8800
    A very stylish Blackberry offering that uses the same GPS receiver as many well-known standalone units such as those from TomTom, Navman and Garmin. Only 14mm thick, the 8800 was the first Blackberry to offer GPS functionality. Read the full review at RIM BlackBerry 8800
  • Nokia N82
    The Nokia N82 has an excellent 5-megapixel Carl Zeiss camera with a Xenon flash and a very strong build. Turn by turn GPS navigation may cost extra, but the composite TV-out cable makes it a very attractive offering. Read the full review at Nokia N82
    With a slide-out keyboard and a tilting display, the TyTN II is bulky, but feature-packed. This fantastic device even includes two small lights on the keyboard to aid typing. The GPS can take some time to acquire a signal, but it is responsive to changes once it’s locked on. Read the full review at HTC TyTN II

  • Mio A702
    An emergency GPS locater button is built into this nifty unit, as is a very effective 2.7in TFT touch screen. The Mio A702’s battery life isn’t as good as we would have liked. Read the full review at Mio A702
  • HTC p3600i
    A scroll wheel on the left side of the unit makes browsing a breeze and 3G connectivity means it can surf high-level content at fast speeds. The GPS receiver can take a little while to connect, but usually maintains a stable signal. Read the full review at HTC p3600i
  • Nokia E90 Communicator
    Typing and messaging on the Nokia E90 Communicator is simple thanks to a folding QWERTY keyboard and large internal display. When closed shut, this feature-packed unit looks like just another mobile phone. Positives aside, GPS turn by turn navigation costs extra and the landscape screen isn’t ideal for navigation.

  • RIM BlackBerry Curve 8310
    The iconic Blackberry included GPS on the new Curve 8310. Addictive and intuitive, there’s a good reason why these e-mail-friendly devices are dubbed ‘Crackberries’ by their fans. Read the full review at RIM BlackBerry Curve 8310
  • HTC Touch Cruise
    Despite a slightly bulky design and a below average screen, this device runs on Windows Mobile 6 and has a very user-friendly “TouchFLO” interface as well as a 3-megapixel camera. The GPS signal will drop out without a clear view of the sky, but the signal is generally stable enough for navigation. Read the full review at HTC Touch Cruise
