The unique Mio 269 GPS handheld with built-in 2.5GB hard-drive and integrated GPS antenna is now available for pre-order in the USA (via MobileMag).

I own the Mio 269 GPS device since March and I am very pleased with it. I should have published a review by now, but I just did not get around it yet.
Below is a quick take on the pros and cons of the Mio 269.

In the US the Mio 269 GPS comes pre-loaded with continental U.S., Hawaii, and Canada.
Amazon.com has the Mio 269 available for pre-order for $799.99.

+ Integrated GPS Antenna
+ Can be used in the car and as a handheld
+ Built-in 2.5GB hard-drive stores all maps of Europe at once
+ Good 3D and 2D map modes
+ Clear Voice
+ Easy to use and fast
+ Lots of accessories: Car Window mount, external GPS antenna, pouch, etc.

Negatives:
- It can take sometimes about 5min. until it finds the satellites
- Cannot route across multiple maps stored on Hard-drive

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
