The Mio Moov V780 incorporates an in-car navigator, 7” widescreen high definition media player and mobile internet device into one device with uncompromised design, and part of the unique design is the carry case with integrated keyboard and optical tracking device which also doubles as a product stand. This means that users can type on a flat surface whilst the screen is conveniently angled for better viewing. It is this type of lateral thinking that caused Ralph Wiegmann, Managing Director of iF International Forum Design GmbH. to remark: “Making turns is the fundamental core spirit of any navigational device. The Mio Moov V780 perfectly translates the essence of this spirit into the identity of the product. By incorporating the “turn” image into the design of the product, navigation not only becomes a core function, but an expression of lifestyle.” Connectivity on-the-go In this fast moving world, it’s good to keep in touch with the office and friends and family, the Moov V780 gives users the means to do this wherever they are.

Hmm a sudo netbook with GPS functions thrown in and a removable screen. Do not get me wrong here, as this is pretty cool, along with more along the lines of the do everything tablet. We just need someone to hack one and put Google OS on it or something (or Linux, XP, B, something).
The Moov V780 's menu navigation is just enjoyable, that too with a 3D animated interface with gesture-driven glide between the menus.
