Motorola M990 carphone

A new phone from Motorola appears to harken back to technology generally thought of as outdated, FCC filings show. Though not much larger than the average handset, the M990 Smart Rider is actually a fixed-place carphone, requiring professional installation. Carphones were once the only form of cellular technology available due to size, but have mostly been replaced in the public and private spheres by handheld devices.

For those who want or need the M990 however, its features should put it into a high-end bracket. In addition to supporting quad-band GSM and EDGE broadband, it is equipped with Bluetooth and an integrated GPS chip, as well as a large color display. The phone should be out in 2008; its primary audience is intended to be businessmen, limo companies and the wealthy elite. [via Unwired View]
