MiTAC Inc is planning for a new lineup of device called MiBuddy. The rumor is that these devices will come with Google’s Android OS as soon as 2010. What’s even better is that these GPS navigation systems will be very capable and carry the necessary components for WiFi, Bluetooth, and even WiMax – since Android makes it so easy for manufacturers to utilize those features.
We have no image of MiBuddy available at this time but it sounds like it will carry a 4.7″ touchscreen with the addition of a slide out keyboard, and a windshield mount for in vehicle use of course.
Even though there won’t be cellular network modules in MiBuddy it sounds like the device can be used for VoIP with its WiFi and WiMax connectivity. No details about pricing just yet… via
