Mio的產品現在是GPS(PND)為主力,但是在這次Computex,現場展示了一部輕省筆電(Netbook),型號為N890,為Mio第一款輕省筆電,Annti先將特色整理如下:

1.Intel Atom N270+Intel 945SE平台
2.內建GPS與3.5G
3.8.9吋,重量880克,機身厚度為2.5公分
4.鍵盤為全尺寸89%,且「,./」3兄弟沒有縮水
5.硬碟為SSD
6.導航軟體為Mio Map
7.有重力感應,可偵測機身位置來旋轉螢幕
8.電源接頭為磁吸式(與MAC一樣)
9.上蓋為皮革漆包覆,底部幾乎沒貼紙(美底設計)
10.Mitac代工

這部給Annti的第一印象很不錯,可惜螢幕沒有觸控也不能轉頭,N890預計在今年第3季上市,因為有3.5G模組的關係,銷售模式會與電信商合作,會先在歐洲鋪貨,至於價格方面,現場人員是說與現在主流8.9吋接近。

This Netbook gives us a pretty good first impression. We are a bit disappointed because it doesn't have a touch screen nor does it have a swivel monitor. We can expect to see it in 3rd quater this year. Since it has built-in 3G, the atual sale will be bundled with a carrier. It will probably appear in Europe first, and the pricing is said to be "competitive."
