Mio just unveiled a new handheld device called Mio A702 that integrates a GPS receiver as well as a 3.2 MP digital camera. It has a front face that feels like brushed aluminum, and from the back is resembles Mio A501.
A702 has a numeric keypad, unlike A501, and supports microSD cards for memory expansion. The 3.2 MP camera deserves a flash too of course and Mio didn’t leave that out and even threw in one of those mirror if you’re into taking pictures of yourself. The navigation feature has its own interface button on the left allowing you to turn on or off the GPS receiver chip. Speaking of the GPS receiver chip, the new Mio A702 uses the SiRFDirect feature we talked about recently which they call NavSteadi. It allows for a better navigation experience buy utilizing heading and acceleration sensors to help with GPS reception in areas where signals are poor.
