Mio A501

 

短胖身型讓A501看起來可愛而具特色。相機與儲存空間都很突出,但卻搭配效能較差的CPU,而且也沒有WiFi,不免讓人覺得可惜。但優異的續航表現挽回了一些信心,而且Mio主力的導航功能也沒讓人失望。

1. 相機可自動對焦; 2. 有1GB儲存空間; 3. 續航力優; 4. 使用SD卡。

1. 效能不佳; 2. 機身較厚; 3. 無WiFi。

Mio DigiWalker A501 review: Mio DigiWalker A501

 

Decent sat-nav features; good phone features.

No 3G or Wi-Fi; ugly design; sluggish performance.

The Nokia N95 has set the benchmark for smartphones with sat-nav features and unfortunately the Mio DigiWalker A501 gets nowhere near it. The device packs plenty of features into a small space, but its sluggish performance, ugly design and lack of 3G...

Mio - A501

 

Mio has done well for itself in the mobile navigation world recently. While TomTom may make a lot of noise about its products, Mio stealthily increases its share of the market, to the point where, according ...

There are other ways to get sat-nav on a Pocket PC device, and you could go the ‘mix ‘n' match' route and choose your own third party software. But as an all in one solution, the Mio A501 is a good mid-range choice.
