When Tak Wak, the German company responsible for the tw700, was threshing out the specs for their latest creation, they no doubt wanted something more than a smartphone. It’s likely they figured rather than bringing your precious iPhone along whenever you’re on some adventure, why not go for the Android-powered tw700 instead? See, smartphones are just handhelds with apps. The tw700, however, is a different beast. A dedicated multi-function device that any hiker, mountaineer, and swashbuckling daredevil can use at will.
Long story short. When you need GPS mapping, the tw700 does it better. Still keep in touch via smartphone? The tw700 is a smartphone. It’s also a pocket walkie-talkie inc ase phoning isn’t necessary or there ‘s not enough juice for a call.
Another rplus for the tw700 is it was designed for the outdoor set, people who like roughing it up and going places. To this end, the tw700 is lightweight, sturdy, and comes with a generous number of bells and whistles to keep it on the cool side of things.
Expect the tw700 to land next year, with a retail price of several hundred Euro.
