Great Mio8380 review at Mobile-review.com
The Russian website posted an English version of their review full of images of the Mitac Mio8380 with Windows Smartphone 2002 OS. This is the first clamshell designed smartphone running the Microsoft OS.

Some comments from their review include:

"Itís interesting that many efforts were made to save power in the phone. For example, processor Intel XScale PXA 255 has a frequency 200 MHz, though rated frequency is 400 MHz. An attempt to reduce the frequency was made to decrease power consumption. This processor is very sensitive to charging. When the battery has about 10-15% of power (15-20 minutes till the full discharging) it is almost impossible to use a phone, it reacts too slowly to all commands.

Internal display supports up to 65000 colors and has a resolution of 176х220 pixels. It is well-seen in inside and outside. Colors become not so bright under the sun, but the picture is quite visible (TFT matrix).

Now few words about the memory in the phone. It has 16 Mb of RAM (32 Мб ROM), OS and running programs occupiy about 7-8 Mb. Remaining place can be occupied by own data and programs."

Reception quality is wonderful, itís much better than other smartphones have. The main shortcoming is that polyphonic ringer has a low volume. Constantly you notice missed calls when you look on the screen of the phone."

The reviewer seems to be impressed at the end, even though the Mitac Mio8380 is bigger than the Motorola MPx200. Worth reading the review.
