Mio device to get WiMax and multimedia support

But support for WiMax and other mobile broadband technologies is only optional

Mio has equipped its latest navigation device, the Moov V780, with a 7-inch touchscreen, support for HD playback and the option to integrate support for WiMax.

The Windows CE-based Moov V780 is about 14 millimeters thick and weighs 445 grams.

One of the main features on the Moov V780 is its video support. The device can connect to an HDTV and play back video content at 720p using, for example, DivX or MPEG-4. There is also built-in support for watching digital TV and YouTube videos. The sound comes via built-in speakers or a 3.5 millimeter stereo audio jack.

Users can listen to music and watch images, as well.

The Moov V780 also has some office functionality. The device comes with built-in support for Exchange and Gmail. Users can write e-mail using either a virtual keyboard or an accessory that combines a carrying case and a physical keyboard.

Content is stored in memory -- in versions offering 4GB to 8GB -- or a MicroSD card.

The Moov V780 surfs the Web using Internet Explorer 6 via 802.11g, and offers WiMax, 3G, and 802.11b as options.

The Moov V780 is still essentially a navigation device, and comes with Mio's Spirit software.

Pricing and shipping details weren't immediately available, though the company noted they will vary from market to market.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
