Mio Explora K70

Rather than focus on its navigators, Mio today launched the Explora K70. One of the company's first phones to depend almost exclusively on its 3.5-inch touchscreen for its interface, the phone is also the company's first to carry 3G over HSPA as well as the firm's signature GPS in a single device. Appropriately, the K70 draws on Mio's experience with GPS and has turn-by-turn navigation with a bird's-eye view.

Mio further gives the phone a 3-megapixel camera with autofocus, Wi-Fi and a microSDHC slot to load in maps or other data. Windows Mobile 6.1 underpins the K70 and supplies built-in Office file editing. A launch and a price date aren't known, though the phone supports GSM, EDGE and HSPA on the 850MHz band and therefore will work natively in the US, including on AT&T's 3G network.
