Alpine Blackbird Adds Class to Portable GPS

Alpine Electronics knows how to make a classy-looking product. With all the other portable GPS units looking kind of clunky and not easy on the eyes, the Blackbird PMD-B100 is sleek and runs on the Windows CE platform, has an integrated traffic receiver and comes with NAVTEQ map coverage for the US and Canada. It can be carried around from car to car or connect to a wired docking station, to be controlled through one of Alpine's touchscreen-based AV head units. But what I love about this product is its other multimedia qualities, including a built-in SD/MMC slot, USB 2.0, an embedded Windows Media Player and 256MB of flash memory for listening to MP3 or WMA files. Retails for $750.
