iPod clone goes landscaping, finds GPS

image_26563_largeimagefile iPod clone goes landscaping, finds GPSThere’s no mistaking where they got their styling cues from. What do you get when you turn an iPod on its side, toss in a GPS receiver, and add-in touchscreen capabilities? You get this, the Mapod Roller Search Navigator EL-908, which comes complete with a touch-wheel like controller. Powered by Linux, the EL-908 boasts a “fashionable design” (not their own, of course), plug-and-play functionality, 3.6-inch color display, and “the most complete map information.” What iPod clone would be complete without some sort of music playback? Fret not, grey market sellers, because this Mapod (get it, it’s my pod) dishes out the MP3s too.
