Mention MIO and you’ll probably think about GPS navigation systems, but this time round the company decided to announce its Litepad N890 at Computex that will come with all the trappings of a netbook in addition to an integrated GPS receiver as well as mapping software from Mio themselves. The body stands at an incredibly slim 25mm, tipping the scales at 880 grams. You get a built-in rotation sensor that knows how to orientate the screen according to how it is held at the moment – perfect for browsing ebooks on it. Other features include Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, a built-in 3.5G modem and is both splash- and shock-proof. No word on pricing, but it will hit the general market this July.
