What if your GPS receiver became a phone?

Cybergraphy's device can do just that, in a pinch.

Cybergraphy Technology

As much of personal technology rapidly converges into single handheld devices, one of the last frontiers is GPS. But here's a twist: Rather than trying to cram a satellite receiver into a mobile phone, what if a company went about it the other way around?

Cybergraphy Technology's GlobalTrack G200P is a compact receiver with an integrated microphone and speaker that can actually be used as a phone, though we have no idea what kind of reception it would get. As a GPS unit, though, its credentials seem worthy--a high-sensitivity receiver that the company says has a maximum standby time two months, according to MobileWhack. It also has a built-in motion sensor, 16MB of memory and the ability to send and receive SMS signals.

Unfortunately there's no word of a camera and MP3 player.
