First GLONASS enabled Phone Coming in March

Russian company Sistema showed off a phone with a GLONASS chip on Tuesday. Sales are expected in March - perhaps March 1 or perhaps, per a joke from Prime Minister Putin, on March 8, International Women’s Day. (And, yes he said something about tracking husbands). The company plans to make 500,000 and to help boost GLONASS use, “Russia plans to introduce duties of around 25 percent by 2012 on the import of mobile phones without the GLONASS navigation system, as part of efforts to encourage worldwide adoption of the technology.”
