No matter where you go, the Ricoh 500SE knows where you are

Ricoh 500SE
Convergence strikes again! Ricoh's new camera is almost as cool as Samsung's HSDPA shooter and far, far cooler than their 180 degree rotating screen. Not that that's a particularly difficult feat to accomplish, mind you.

Anyway, the Ricoh 500SE boasts an 8 megapixel resolution, and a 2.5" LCD screen, as well as a ruggedized, waterproof exterior. Heck, it's even got Wi-Fi built-in, for transferring pictures to your computer and Bluetooth for talking to your mobile devices. And rounding out the trifecta of wireless technologies? GPS, baby. The 500SE comes with a detachable GPS unit that can be used to location-stamp your photos, but should you have an external GPS device that has Bluetooth, you can use that too.

All these features won't come cheap: the 500SE is available in Europe right now for about $1,200. Should you wish to ditch the Wi-Fi, that'll bring the model down to a much more affordable, er, $1,100. Oh what the heck? Go nuts!
