The Mio Moov V780 Navigation Device features GPS, HD video, TV and WiFi
The Mio Moov V780 calls itself a navigation device, but it looks to be more of a MID with navigation features. Not only does it perform its namesake task (using Mio Spirit), it also brings 720p HD playback, streaming HD through an HDMI, digital TV support, web browsing, email, YouTube, image viewer and music player to the table. Recently it won an iF Product Design Award for 2010.
The Moov V780 has a 7-inch TFT LCD 800 x 480 resolution capacitive touchscreen, 600 MHz CPU, 512MB of memory and 4GB of internal storage with MicroSD card expansion. Some specs that won’t excite to many would be the Windows CE 6.0 operating system and Internet Explorer 6 (yes, the one that finally is being phased out). The Moov V780 supports H.264, H.263, DivX, WM9, VC1, MOV and MPEG4 video; MP3, WMV, WMA and ACC audio; and JPEG, PNG and GIF photos. Available ports are a mini USB 2.0, 3.5mm headphone, microphone and external TV antenna input.
Connection wise it features a WiFi 802.11 b/g and optional 3.5G and WiMAX. The Moov uses a 2300mAh rechargeable polymer battery but there’s no word on how much time that gives you. The V780 measures 8 x 4.37 x 0.565 inches and weighs just under a pound at 15.7 oz. Mio uses the 3D buzzword to describe its interface but we’re not sure quite what that means without seeing it in action. We should see examples of it soon as Mio will be exhibiting the Moov V780 at CeBIT starting next Thursday.
Update: Here’s a hands-on video by JKK from JKKMobile demonstrating the Moov V780. According to Mio, price should be between €400 to €599 ($545 to $815).
Also of mention are the mass list of accessories to be sold with the Moov V780, most notably the carry case with tablet mount and included QWERTY keyboard, desk stand, windshield mount and backseat holder. No word on price or when it may debut, but we should find that out in a few days.
