NAVIGON, the first professional navigation solution for the iPhone available now

image We know TomTom is coming but we don’t know when it will be here and Navigon have beaten them to the punch with a proper Turn by Turn application for iPhone 3G and 3GS running the 3.0 Firmware.

It only carries European maps at the moment from Navteq and no mention if this will be expanded to other parts of the world in the future but if your desperate for a full GPS iPhone solution you can get it now.

I have personally used both platforms in the past on Windows Mobile devices and have been happy with both so would not consider this to be an inferior platform in any way.

Available from the App Store priced at £54.99 including all the European maps and it seems like you have to install them all which equates to a whopping 1.65 Gigs, really glad I got the 32 Gig 3G S yesterday 🙂

More details after the break with complete map details and languages.

Acer M900 unboxing video

It’s perhaps no coincidence that just a week after the excellent HTC Touch Pro2 (check out our review here) was launched that Acer should release a Windows mobile device that’s pretty similar. I am, of course, talking about the Acer M900.

The Acer M900 is a similar size to the TP2 and also has a large WVGA (480×800) touch screen display and, perhaps more importantly, a good sized slicing QWERTY keyboard. The M900 is a little cheaper than it’s rival but has a comparable specification so it’s not surprising that we’re being asked whether we think you should buy the Touch Pro2 or the Acer M900 and how one sizes up against the other. The obvious way to do that is for us to now review the M900 and directly compare it to the TP2. We’ll tell you what we think of the M900 and whether or not it is a viable alternative.

So here’s my Acer M900 unboxing video so that you can see what’s included in the package as well as giving you just a little taster of what the handset has to offer.

Copy/Paste in iPhone OS 3.0 kicks Windows Mobile copy/cut feature by light years!

Usually we don’t bother about reporting new features in new versions of iPhone OS – instead we are an app junkies and prefer to search new apps for some gems and tell you about them here at Mobile Tech Addicts. However the implementation of copy/paste in iPhone OS 3.0 is gobsmacking. Here we are reviewing it for your enjoyment and pleasure.

Firstly one must notice that copy&paste in iPhone makes it possible to use some web applications because now entry of complicated things is possible via copy and paste:
