Mio's Moov V780 MID/GPS Device Gets Powered By Tegra
The massive touch panel is just the beginning, as this 2010 iF Design Award winner also includes a full-scale multi-media player and a carry case with an integrated keyboard and optical tracking device that also happens to double as a kick-stand. Need to stay connected? No worries, as Mio has included WiMAX and Wi-Fi options here. There's also the fact that this unit is powered by NVIDIA's Tegra chip, which means that 3D graphics are no problem, and it also means that this could easily double as a homegrown emulation machine if you know the right coding. Pricing has yet to be announced, but seriously, you'd pay anything for a Tegra-powered navigator.
