This just in from Mio…… Mio, one of the leading GPS makers, announced today the Mio Moov V780.Designed to provide the best navigation, entertainment and Internetexperience, the Moov V780 features 7” flat widescreen, the award-wining Mio Spirit navigation software, HD multimedia capabilities, and a digital TV receiver. Many tech analyists have taken notice of the Mio line due to its sleek and intuitive user interface, with mio gps reviews and ratings pouring in.
“Mio is honored to receive a 2010 iF Design Award for the Moov V780. It is Mio’s core brand value to help people experience and explore the world more easily and freely, and the Moov V780 realizes our vision,” said Billy Ho, the president of Mio Technology.
The Mio Moov V780 incorporates an in-car navigator, 7” widescreen high definition media player and mobile internet device into one device with uncompromised design, and part of the unique design is the carry case with integrated keyboard and optical tracking device which also doubles as a product stand. This means that users can type on a flat surface whilst the screen is conveniently angled for better viewing.
It is this type of lateral thinking that caused Ralph Wiegmann, Managing Director of iF International Forum Design GmbH. to remark: “Making turns is the fundamental core spirit of any navigational device.
The Mio Moov V780 perfectly translates the essence of this spirit into the identity of the product. By incorporating the “turn” image into the design of the product, navigation not only becomes a core function, but an expression of lifestyle,”
In this fast moving world, it’s good to keep in touch with the office and friends and family, the Moov V780 gives users the means to do this wherever they are. By providing users with the means to access web sites and e-mail servers via wireless internet, 3G or WiMax, the Moov V780 gives users the freedom to communicate.
Whether commuting or on vacation the Moov V780 has been designed to give users the best possible multimedia experience. Powered by the first-generation NVIDIA Tegra mobile processor, the Moov V780 delivers powerful HD multimedia capabilities and extended battery life. The integrated digital TV receiver allows the watching of free-to-air digital television stations whilst the high quality display and speakers helps users become immersed in the photos, videos and music they’re playing. Connect the V780 to a suitable television and high definition movies and videos can be watched on an even larger screen. “With NVIDIA Tegra and the Moov V780, you can take your favorite HD content with you. Enjoy a great visual experience for hours between power charges,” said Bill Henry, Director of Tegra Product Management, at NVIDIA.
