Mitac launches the Mio 168 Pocket PC with built in GPS
Mitac announced the launch of the Mio 168 claiming that it is the world’s first Pocket PC with a built-in GPS module.

The Mio 168 is running Microsoft Windows Mobile 2003 OS, an 300MHz Intel PXA255 processor, 32MB ROM, 64MB SDRAM and a 3.5-inch, 65,000-color transflective TFT LCD screen. It comes with a SDIO slot.

With each purchase, the company is also providing a free 32MB MultiMedia Card (MMC) with a US map, but apparently Mitac does not have plans to market the device in the US. “But the map function will be great for Taiwanese business travelers on the road in the US,” said Justine Liu, a PR manager at Mitac.

Still according to the news reports the Mio 168 is priced at NT$12,000 (about US$352).
