Review of GPS navigator Mio C310

“The C310 utilizes a built-in 1200 mAh Li-Ion battery. As the maker claims it can keep the navigator up and running for 5 hours straight. We tested it out in our usual manner by having a walk around the city with the navigator mode on at maximum backlighting settings and with display always active. The result was, albeit a bit lower than the claimed numbers, 4 hours and 7 minutes. The battery life is not outstanding, yet do consider the fact that the lifetime you get off a single charge is vital only when walking around with the navigator, as while in car, you will always have a charger at hand. ” Read more here:

First UMPC with Linux preinstalled?
“TabletKiosk will ship in mid-April what may be the first “UMPC” (ultra-mobile PC) available in single units with Linux pre-installed. The “eo TufTab v7112XT” is a ruggedized tablet with a 1.2GHz Via C7-M processor, 40GB harddrive, and the option of OpenSUSE 10.2 pre-installed. The TufTab is a rugged device with a frontpanel rated to IP53 standards for resistance to dust and spraying water ingress. Although fairly expensive (like most currently available UMPCs), it offers some high-end features — including a user-facing 1.3MPix CMOS camera with claimed 30fps video capture, a biometric fingerprint reader, several expansion slots, and a full gig of RAM to go with its x86-compatible processor.The device is based on a Via C7-M processor clocked at 1.2GHz, connected via a 400MHz FSB (front-side bus) to Via’s VX700, a “single-chip chipset” designed just for UMPCs. The chipset integrates Via’s 200MHz UniChrome Pro II graphics processor, which offers 2D and (with closed Linux drivers) 3D acceleration, along with MPEG-2/4 and WMV9 acceleration. With the right drivers, the platform should play back video at very low CPU usage.The TufTab comes standard with a full 1GB DDR2-400 SDRAM SODIMM, and a shock-mounted 1.8-inch 40GB UDMA133 hard drive. It has a 7-inch, sunlight-readable TFT (thin-film transistor) LCD resistive touchscreen with native resolution of 1024 x 600.I/O includes integrated 802.11b/g and Bluetooth 2.0, with expansion via SDIO-MMC, as well as a good old-fashioned 32-bit CardBus-style PCMCIA Type II slot. An optional docking cradle offers additional I/O, including a single USB 2.0 port, VGA, 10/100 Ethernet, audio I/O, and a power connector. Also available are an optional Bluetooth keyboard and USB floppy and CD-rw/DVD drives.” Read more here:
