Mitac launches the Mio 8390 Windows Mobile smartphone
Mio Technology launched its new smartphone, the Mio 8390. The new model is a tri-band GSM/GPRS mobile phone based on Windows Mobile 2003 software for smartphone and running on an Intel PXA262 CPU.

The 2.2" LCD screen can display 260,000 colors, the phone supports MP3 files as ring tones, the latest Java MIDP 2.0 games with polyphonic sound and tactile feedback, and integrated MSN Messenger client. The Mio 8390 offers consumers a choice of silver and red color schemes. The new smartphone is set for availability in early February, and will be initially sold in Taiwan.

The flip-cover clamshell design of the Mio 8390 incorporates a 300K digital camera, with a zoom lens and adjustable focus and brightness. The built-in camera provides a four-shot burst mode, five-step zoom, and support for night photography. Users can shoot sixty 15-second video clips-a total of 15 minutes-with sound.

According to Mitac the Mio 8390 comes with 16MB RAM that should be enough to store data for up to 10,000 contacts.

The company is betting on the uptake of smartphones in the mobile market. According to IDC research, from 2002 to 2007, worldwide shipments of smartphones will show average compound annual growth of 85.9%. Additionally, handheld wireless communications devices based on Microsoft platforms are projected to see average compound annual growth rates of 75%.
