Mio device to get WiMax and multimedia support

But support for WiMax and other mobile broadband technologies is only optional

Mio has equipped its latest navigation device, the Moov V780, with a 7-inch touchscreen, support for HD playback and the option to integrate support for WiMax.

The Windows CE-based Moov V780 is about 14 millimeters thick and weighs 445 grams.

One of the main features on the Moov V780 is its video support. The device can connect to an HDTV and play back video content at 720p using, for example, DivX or MPEG-4. There is also built-in support for watching digital TV and YouTube videos. The sound comes via built-in speakers or a 3.5 millimeter stereo audio jack.

Users can listen to music and watch images, as well.

The Moov V780 also has some office functionality. The device comes with built-in support for Exchange and Gmail. Users can write e-mail using either a virtual keyboard or an accessory that combines a carrying case and a physical keyboard.

Content is stored in memory -- in versions offering 4GB to 8GB -- or a MicroSD card.

The Moov V780 surfs the Web using Internet Explorer 6 via 802.11g, and offers WiMax, 3G, and 802.11b as options.

The Moov V780 is still essentially a navigation device, and comes with Mio's Spirit software.

Pricing and shipping details weren't immediately available, though the company noted they will vary from market to market.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
