ClarionMiND navigator

Better known for its audio gear, Clarion has announced the ClarionMiND, a forthcoming GPS unit. Unlike most such systems however the MiND is also designed to operate as a mobile Internet device (MID), a category currently dominated by Apple's iPhone; the MiND connects primarily through Wi-Fi, which enables web browsing as well as the use of special MySpace and YouTube apps. Unlike the iPhone, though, cellular access requires tethering through a Bluetooth 2.0 connection.

The MiND is equipped with an 800MHz Atom processor, and stores media on 4GB of internal memory, with expansion being provided through a microSD slot. It uses a 4.8-inch, 800x480 touchscreen display, and supplies both mini- and standard-sized USB ports. Other software features include e-mail, weather info, a PDF viewer and an RSS reader. Clarion has not set a release date for the device.
