Longcheer, a fast growing Chinese mobile phone design house, has entered into cooperation with u-blox to bring GPS-enabled low- and mid range phones to the Chinese and European markets.

The models G600, G800 and G630 have just become available while the G801 and G900 are expected to begin shipments to the Chinese market in Q4 2008. These new phones combine a nice set of features ranging from 1.3M/2M pixel camera, MP3 music/MP4 video movie player, 2.8 inch touch screen, and Internet browser.
