Mio A701 communicator

August 30th, 2005

Mio A710 cellphone - pda - smartphoneThe are some news about the new Mio A701 communicator. Info Sync World reports:

“Based on an Intel PXA270 processor running at 520 MHz, the device will feature a 2.7-inch touch screen with a resolution of 240 x 320 pixels. A total of 192 MB of memory is available, of which 128 MB is in the shape of non-volatile Flash ROM, whereas the remaining 64 MB is of the RAM variety in which applications will run.

The main draw of the GSM-based communicator is however its integrated GPS functionality, powered by a latest-generation SirfStar III chipset, with Mio Technology having managed to avoid flip-out antennas as seen in previous products from the company. 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.

ASUS W2V Review – Pocket Lint

August 30th, 2005

Asus W2V Laptop PCPocket Lint writes about the Asus W2V laptop (review):

“It’s not only the look and the feel that is important, as Asus has made sure that the specification is up to standard too. So, you find a Pentium M 770 processor, which has a running speed of 2.13GHz, controlling the show, while 1024MB DDR2 memory gives enough room to load applications with ease. The 80GB hard drive is enough to record plenty of TV programmes but you’ll be glad of the built-in DVD rewriter, so you can back up copies for later use.”

The Asus W2V laptop receives 9 points (out of 10) in this laptop review and the verdict is:
“The Asus W2V is a stunning example of a notebook designed primarily for multimedia use. We had great fun using it and feel that you will too. “
