Mio is going to release 3D GPA PDA phones in the second half of 2008, DigiTimes reports.
Mio's move is a countermeasure against the strategy adopted by a number of handset vendors, including High Tech Computer (HTC), Asustek Computer, E-Ten Information Systems and BenQ, who have all extended their smartphone product lines to include 3G GPS smartphones, the sources noted.

Mio's 3G GPS PDA phone is expected to be built using the 3.5G platform from Qualcomm and will feature integrated application services, including photo navigation, TMC (traffic message channel) and LBS (location base service), indicated the sources.
The report also includes an interesting snip about Garmin. The GPS maker is seeking cooperation with handset makers and is expected to roll out own-brand GPS phones in the near future.
