Mio’s new GPS phone – sexy!

March 7th, 2009 No comments

bigMio’s just announced their upcoming product line.  Included in their releases is this sexy beast – the Mio Explora K70.  The picture does not do it justice – check out their web site for more pictures.  It features quad band technology for you world travelers, a 3.5″ screen, WiFi, 3G, 3 megapixel camera, Bluetooth, and (obviously) a GPS.  I don’t know how they got it so skinny cause it seems they crammed everything but the kitchen sink in.  It will auto-rotate as well, so you can see your trip in portrait or widescreen modes, and it plays videos and music so you can be entertained when you get to wherever it is you’re going.

Biggest downer?  Windows Mobile 6.1.  Dang.

The Biodegradable Grass Phone

Two Year Life-Cycle

Two Year Life-Cycle

Too often the life of a cell phone is tied to the two-year contract provided by phone  providers.  When two years are up, the once innovative, phone is discarded for a newer, sleeker model.

Je-Hyun Kim’s grass phone concept carefully considers the life-cycle of a typical phone today.  Made of grass and hay, this phone is made to recycle itself.  Designed only to last the duration of it’s operative  life-cycle, this biodegradable phone clumps apart for easy recycling.  Once the grassy overlay has dissolved, the screen, keys, and other electronic parts can easily be recycled or integrated into a new phone.  Hay may no longer be just for horses!
