Mio lining up iPod-like GPS PDA?

updated 11:20 am EDT, Wed July 4, 2007

Mio P360 and P560

GPS producer Mio Technology is planning a major reworking of its PDA GPS units to spark new life into their design, an early leak shows. The P360 and P560 will be dropped in as replacements for the P350 and P560, shedding the earlier conventional look for one that appears to cross the iPod mini and iPhone: the tapered block shape will be dominated by a stylus-based touchscreen and allow the only a secondary joystick and startup buttons for contacts and GPS at the front of the unit. Internet access will come through Wi-Fi with Bluetooth providing for wireless headsets or keyboards; maps and other data are loaded on to an SD card.

Very few details are available beyond these core specifications, but a release of both versions of the mapping PDA is probable before the end of 2007 and may include the US given Mio's historically worldwide release schedule. [via NaviGadget]
