Mio Present A New GPS Phone - Meet The K70

By 06:11 Fri, 09 Jul 2021 Comments

At an originally-created virtual online booth stand, sat-nav oriented manufacturer Mio presented their latest GPS phone called the Mio Explora K70. It has a 3.5-inch classy screen of WQVideo Graphics Array (VGA) resolution, a 3 megapixel auto focus capturing camera and runs on Windows Mobile 6.1 Pro. Explora K70 should also offer optimized GPS navigation experience with Mio's own navigation software.

The Mio Explora K70 is a fully-fledged PocketPersonal Computer (PC) based on the elegant Qualcomm MSM7201 platform and thus sporting a 528 Mhz Central Processing Units (CPU) and 128Mega Bytes (MB) of RAM. It's got quad-band Global System for Mobile communication (GSM) as well as tri-band HSDPA/HSUPA support.

There's an accelerometer on board the Mio Explora K70 to allow automatic classy screen rotation, and Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) is also supported.

Mio Explora K70 is certainly not the first GPS-enabled phone by Mio, but it's certainly the most attractive one out of their Mitac lineup.

The most impressive thing about the Mio Explora K70 is its size - it's only 11.9 mm in thickness and weighs 115 g.

Among the letdowns of Explora K70 however is the lack of some sort of a thumb-optimized user interface. Mio could have used Spb Shell for example, but they are obviously trying to haged costs down. The somewhat low classy screen resolution (by today's standards) is also something to be considered.

The Mio Explora K70 will optionally be delivered with an extended retail package including custom-made device mount and carrying case.

Currently, there is no info on prices and availability for the recent Mio Explora K70.
