PDC boasts of do-all Guide Dog media device

updated 11:55 am EST, Fri December 8, 2006

PDC Guide Dog

PDC claims to have developed one of the world's first truly universal handheld devices, the Guide Dog. Using a 4-inch touchscreen, GPS receiver, and antenna, the navigation system is said not only to provide GPS mapping but also to serve as an MP3 audio and MP4 video player, an Internet access tool, a 3D game system, and a VoIP phone.

The company also suggests controversially that external attachments will extend the Guide Dog with most any commonly desired ability: such as DVB-T over-the-air broadcasts and hands-free calling. Storage is promised through SD cards as well as the company's own undocumented Personal Storage Disc flash card format. No pricing or availability has been set for the mystery device, though the company will claim a presence at January's CES show.
