Cell/mobile phone maker Benefon will be introducing a new GPS-enabled phone by the end of the year called TWIG. GPS in mobile phones is nothing new, but this one is interesting since it can report the location of one TWIG to another (including distance away and direction). This could be a useful tool for keeping track of humanitarian workers in areas with wireless coverage. Cost is estimated at £330 SIM-free.
