Of the growing number of smartphones with integrated GPS, you can now add the Motorola Ming to the list. Yes, you can now wheel and deal with the new Motorola Ming A1600 and the Motorola Ming A1800, which were just announced this week. The next-gen models of the Motorola Ming A1200 both feature a 2.4-inch QVGA touch screen, Bluetooth (with support for the A2DP profile), a microSD expansion slot that accepts up to 4GB cards, and a 3-megapixel camera. Like the Nokia N78, you can use the camera in combination with the GPS to geotag your photos. Sadly, both Linux-based smartphones lack Wi-Fi and 3G support. However, the A1600 offers quad-band world roaming, and the A1800 has dual-mode functionality so it works on both GSM and CDMA networks. No word yet on pricing or availability date.
