Mio tries hand at full touch, 3G smartphone

updated 03:00 pm EST, Tue March 3, 2009

Mio Explora K70

Rather than focus on its navigators, Mio today launched the Explora K70. One of the company's first phones to depend almost exclusively on its 3.5-inch touchscreen for its interface, the phone is also the company's first to carry 3G over HSPA as well as the firm's signature GPS in a single device. Appropriately, the K70 draws on Mio's experience with GPS and has turn-by-turn navigation with a bird's-eye view.

Mio further gives the phone a 3-megapixel camera with autofocus, Wi-Fi and a microSDHC slot to load in maps or other data. Windows Mobile 6.1 underpins the K70 and supplies built-in Office file editing. A launch and a price date aren't known, though the phone supports GSM, EDGE and HSPA on the 850MHz band and therefore will work natively in the US, including on AT&T's 3G network.
