EnGadget is reporting on Nokia shipping a GPS accessory for 770.
Called the Nokia Navigation Kit, this bundle will include the Navicore Personal 2007 software, an unspecified Bluetooth GPS receiver, and a car-mount rig, priced at €199; for the equivalent of $248, you’re getting TeleAtlas- and Navteq-based maps of continental Europe and the UK, although if you live elsewhere in the world (like we do), you’ll have to shell for additional street-level map packs.
A discussion on LinuxJournal brings up interesting point - can you use Nokia 770 with a GPS device to have some cool things, like in-car navigation and directions (provided you got the right software)? Russ Nelson suggested DeLorme BlueLogger (reviewed here), a $149 Bluetooth GPS receiver.
Surplus Computers has 256 MB RS-MMC card on sale with free shipping for all you Nokia 770 owners. This is not an affiliate or kickback link, I just posted it since the price is right, however, if you do want to get affiliate commission off your own purchase, get an account with FatWallet, then head to Surplus Computers page on FatWallet and click from there - you will earn sweet 18c, which will surely give you headways for financial stability in the future, after all the money you spent on 770.
MobilePlanet (never heard of them before, but that doesn’t mean they’re not a good store) has Nokia 770 available for pre-order. The price is unknown, and over at Global Batteries a battery for 770 is available.
InternetTabletTalk guys figured they’d do an accessory guide for 770 once the device comes out. I am not sure the WiFi Finder is a must-have, and, by the way, would be way cool, if 770 had some LED to show wireless link strength and availability (like going from yellowish to green depending on the strength of 802.11b signal). But they found a charger and extra battery, and overall have done a good job rounding up the necessary side items you might buy if you had a 770.
The paragraph on memory cards got me thinking. The largest one that InternetTabletTalk points to is a 1 GB RS-MMC from SanDisk at Buy.com. I like Buy.com and usually buy all my memory from them, since they always seem to have a handful of Kingston deals. The problem is, however, that while it’s easy to find a 1GB RS-MMC card, 2 gig cards don’t seem to exist.
Would be really nice to plug in a CompactFlash or Secure Digital card from your camera and be able to view the pictures taken right on the bright screen of 770, but I guess won’t happen.
