Mio's A501 GPS PDA phone

Mobile phones, PDAs, Satellite Navigation systems

Mio is covering all bases with its newly-launched A501, offering a mobile phone, GPS and a PDA powered by Windows Mobile 5.0.

The A501 packs a SiRFstar III GPS receiver and all the features you would expect from a decent sat nav unit – points of interest, speed camera alerts and mapping for 22 countries. And there’s the PDA, which is your typical Windows Mobile 5.0 device, so stripped-down versions of Office products essentially. You can also add in the phone, which is quad-band GSM/GPRS with EDGE compatibility, a two megapixel camera and up to 2GB of storage via card.

The only downside is the price – a rather hefty £339.99.
