HTC 7510 – Solid State Computer & Phone & GPS !

HTC7510Further to the post on the arrival of solid state computers in particular the HTC 7501 I see that HTC have got 2 new models…

The top of the range HTC 7510 now runs Windows Mobile 6, has a 16Gb flash drive for storage – more than enough for charts, tracks and waypoints – and as a mobile phone it will support :

o HSDPA/WCDMA: 2100 MHz for Europe
o 850/1900 MHz for USA,
o with up to 384 kbps upload and 1.8 Mbps download speeds
o GSM/GPRS/EDGE: Quad-band 850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz (The device will operate on any frequencies available from the cellular network.)Click here for a full specification

Using the internal GPS and you could have a very capable chartplotter / phone / email / camera / web browser that can work with your current phone provider or WiFi when you are in the marina or in a cafe using a WiFi hotspot. Of course you would also need chartplotter software that works under Windows Mobile 6 such as the Pathaway software from Muskoka. more on that here…

  1. How about AIS input via an ‘engine’ into chartplotting software on the HTC 7510? Is this feasible?

  2. Well thats an interesting question.

    These are the connectivity options available:
    Bluetooth® 2.0
    Wi-Fi®: IEEE 802.11 b/g
    HTC ExtUSB™ (11-pin mini-USB 2.0 and audio jack in one)
    HTC proprietary 16-pin combined port (USB 1.1 host/VGA and TV Out)
    3.5mm stereo audio jack with microphone

    The USB ports have proprietary 11 and 16 pin connectors – but if you could get a convertor then I cant see why you could not input AIS into the device – even at 38,400 baud the processor should be capable of dealing with the signal. Whether the OS – which is Windows Mobile 6 can handle it – well I dont know – perhaps!
