Mio preparing to launch the Mio 168 Pocket PC with built-in GPS in the US
Mio Technology is exhibiting for the first time at the Consumer Electronics Show 2005 (CES). The company is using the show as a launchpad for its series of MioGPS products. At the show, the Mio 136 and Mio 168RS will make their debut in preparation for their official launch in the US market. Mio is working with Microsoft, using the Mio 168RS's high-sensitivity satellite reception system to demonstrate a wireless communications solution at Microsoft's booth in the Las Vegas Convention Center.

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

A Mio Technology spokesperson indicated that in 2005 the company will accelerate the pace at which it enters new markets and develops established ones, while using the Mio promise of distinctive design and continual innovation to provide consumers with a richer, more convenient wireless communications-enhanced lifestyle.
