Pricing and geographic availability has yet to be revealed, but the device is slated for a 2010 release. It’s interesting to note that Mio had been exclusively using Windows CE as the operating system for their products up until now. Not only is Android eating into Microsoft’s smart phone market, but it’s now taking away from other markets too! Mio does plan to continue use of WinCE for the rest of their line up.
Current MiBuddys use Microsoft’s Windows CE operating system exclusively. Windows CE will continue to be offered for the next generation MiBuddys coming out next year, in addition to Android. MiBuddy includes WiFi and Bluetooth, but the next-gen units will also feature support for WiMax.
