“There’s currently a lot of hype surrounding Apple’s iPhone (I can call it that now, right?) but the device that I’d really like to see coming out of Cupertino is not a iPod/cellphone hybrid, it’s an iPod/GPS receiver hybrid,” Adrian Kingsley-Hughes blogs for ZDNet.
“I’m convinced Apple could do a better job of making a usable GPS receiver than any of the big names currently doThe GPS receiver market is enormous and growing rapidly and it’s a market I am surprised that Apple hasn’t ventured into,” Kingsley-Hughes writes.
Kingsley-Hughes writes, “I’d really love to see what Apple would come up with in terms of a design and interface. The more I use my iPod nano the more I feel that Apple have nailed what the interface should be – it’s so easy to use that I just don’t need to look at it any more. That’s exactly what I’d like to see on a GPS receiver – an interface that didn’t require me to have to give it 100% attention whenever I needed to do anything.”
