Other highlights of the Mio A701 include a 1.3 Megapixel camera, as well as Bluetooth 1.2 and an SDIO capable SD/MMC Card expansion slot.”

The Register writes about the Mio GPS smart phone exposed:

The GPS receiver is integrated within the body of the device, so there’s no flip up antenna or receiver stub. There’s a slight bulge on one corner, but nothing to snag on the lining of your pocket, we’d say. The A701 uses the SirfStar III chipset, we understand.

Mio A701 will probably be available in the fourth quarter of 2005.
