Live Search with GPS positioning

"With Live Search for Windows Mobile, users can quickly find and discover places, decide where to go, and easily get to their destination, all from the convenience of their mobile phone," said Iñigo Lopez, senior product manager at Microsoft Corp. "The addition of real-time location awareness is significant. The combination of Live Search with GPS positioning ultimately allows us to provide superior local search results and detailed directions for our users."

 

GPS device - Navigation

Live Search for Windows Mobile pinpoints a user's location with GPS to search nearby businesses and points of interest. GPS integration simplifies navigation by providing easier to follow directions and saves time because users do not have to manually enter location information on their mobile device.

 

Live Search on Windows Mobile GPS devices

"Pharos and Microsoft have a long history of working together to break new ground in navigation," said James Oyang, Ph.D, President of Pharos Science & Applications. "Location-based search is one of the most exciting areas of technology right now. We are honored to work with Microsoft on a product in this field and to continue our work to deliver a great Live Search experience on Windows Mobile devices."

 

Pharos GPS Phone 600

The GPS Phone 600 delivers a powerful combination of guidance, entertainment and mobile office features on an unlocked world phone. Featuring a smart touch screen keyboard and mobile versions of Microsoft Office Outlook, Word, Excel and PowerPoint, the GPS Phone 600 equips business travelers with the tools they need to stay connected and productive. The GPS Phone 600 also includes WiFi, Bluetooth, a two mega-pixel camera with flash, FM radio, Windows Media Player Mobile, Live Search, free real-time traffic information, and a variety of handy travel applications to make travel easier and more enjoyable. Manufacturer suggested retail price (MSRP) for the GPS Phone 600 is $699.95. However, consumers can receive a $100 discount when downloading Live Search. Further discounts are available when purchasing the GPS Phone 600 with a T-Mobile voice and data plan.

 

Pharos Bluetooth GPS Receiver

Featuring the same GPS receiver that comes with Microsoft Streets & Trips, the Bluetooth GPS receiver identifies customer position and applies this location information to preloaded or web-based maps to provide more accurate and efficient directions. MSRP for the Bluetooth GPS receiver is $149.95, though Live Search for Windows Mobile users can purchase the device for $70.00 as a part of the Microsoft-Pharos promotion.
