Mio has always known the art of marking very attractive looking GPS Navigation smartphones, and their newly leaked Mio Amber Windows Mobile 6.5 device certainly has looks in spades.

The device is no slouch in the specs department either, sporting the now de rigueur WVGA screen of the generous 3.6 inch variety, a goodly amount of RAM and ROM, 5 megapixel camera and G-Sensor. 

Adding to this usual list however is the rather uncommon FM Transmitter, perfect for tuning your GPS phone into your car radio for turn by turn instructions, and even more unusual a Magnetic sensor, something that should help assuage any HTC G1 or iPhone 3G S envy one may have.

The full specs below:

  • CPU: Qualcomm MSM 7201A Turbo (528MHz)
  • Memory: 256/512MB RAM/ROM
  • Display: 3.61? WVGA
  • Camera: 5MP AF + secondary VGA
  • Battery: 1500mAh minimum
  • OS: WM 6.5
  • MicroSD, GPS, AGPS, BT 2.0, USB 2.0, M sensor, G sensor
  • Noise Cancellation
  • FM Transmitter

PS:  I know our readers will be unhappy with the Qualcomm MSM 7201A processor, but honestly, for GPS navigation, Opera Mobile web browsing, music and light video watching its perfectly fine.
