"Mio made it known late last year that the company was cooking up a mobile handset and it appears as though the Taiwanese GPS company's entrance into the mobile game will indeed be a sexy one."
Mio are better known for their DigiWalker series of GPS-equipped handhelds and this is, AFAIK, their first foray into making a phone. It's really not bad for a first effort, with the ubiquitous Qualcomm MSM7201A 528MHz processor, quadband GSM, tri-band HSPA, GPS (of course!), and 3MP camera. The device has a 3.5" QWVGA screen, which is passably large enough for GPS usage, and a slot that accepts micro-SDHC cards for all your maps. No word yet on pricing or availability.
