Mio A701 PDA phone to feature integrated GPS

Posted on Friday, August 26 2005 @ 09:16:43 CEST by


Mio has been manufacturing some well PDAs with integrated GPS modules and their next step seems to be a mobile phone! The Mitac Mio A701 will be the first Windows Mobile-based smartphone with GPS.

This device will feature a 520MHz XScale PXA270 processor from Intel together with 192MB of memory. About 64MB of that will be ROM and the phone will run Windows Mobile 5.

It will have a quite large 2.7-inch 240 x 320 pixels display and also a 1.3 megapixel camera. It will feature tri-band GSM support as well as GPRS. There's also Bluetooth 1.2 connectivity and a SD/MMC memory slot to expand the memory of this PDA/phone/GPS/camera combination.

The A701 will use the SirfStar III chipset to provide an integrated GPS receiver. This device will be promoted as a phone with PDA functionality and not the other way round.

However, there seems to be a major drawback that may be a problem for many potential buyers. This phone does not have a keyboard. It has a few buttons for basic functionality but the rest will have to be done with the touchscreen.

Ok that you have to use the touchscreen, but is the A701 equiped with a stylus?
What about the dimensions of this PDA
