Mobile phones can do nearly everything these days. But global positioning satellite (GPS) navigation systems are normally reserved for more powerful devices such as smartphones, PDAs and laptops.


Until now. Nokia has added an integrated GPS module into its latest handset, the 6110 Navigator.


The 6110 Navigator comes equipped with MapKing 2007 software for Hong Kong and Macau. As well as keeping you from getting lost, the software includes location guides for restaurants, car parks, petrol stations and so on.


Better yet, the 6110 comes with voice navigation, which actually tells you which way to go in order to reach your destination.


You can also download maps of other cities wherever you are in the world.


Besides the all-knowing locator, the 6110 also boasts quad-band GSM, 3G connections for video calls and a 3.5G HSDPA for downloading data from the internet.


Other features include a 2.2-inch, 16 million-colour LCD display, a 2 megapixel CMOS digital camera and integrated Bluetooth.


For HK$3,500, the 6110 has some neat tricks up its sleeve, especially for users who travel a lot, or who have an appetite for different types of food around Hong Kong.


PROS: built-in GPS navigation system, high-speed 3.5G data speed, 3G video calling, big display


CONS: expensive purchase if you don't use the GPS
