Motorola launched navigation-enabled phone in India
Last week Motorola launched in India its first GPS-enabled phone, MOTOMING A1600, with on-board navigation software for 30 cities, picture geotagging and location-based reminders. This new device will sell for a suggested retail price of Rs 15,847 ($316), a very aggressive price for a navigation device in India.

"Our GPS navigation service is free with no activation charges, independent of mobile networks and can be used even without inserting the SIM card. We have ensured that all major cities in the country are a part of this unique service”, said Lloyd Mathias, senior director and head of sales and distribution, India & South West Asia at Motorola Mobile Devices.

This Linux OS phone has a distinctive design with a transparent flip cover, touch screen and a stylus.
Indian maps from MapmyIndia are embedded on a 1GB memory card.
