The Nuvifone G60 and M20 navigation-oriented smartphones have been delayed time and time again, but it seems the Garmin-ASUS duo is still intent on launching the devices before the end of the decade. In fact, if the latest rumblings along the mobile grapevine pan out, we’ll see Garmin-ASUS launching the Nuvifone G60 and Nuvifone M20 in Malaysia within the next 30 days!
The Nuvifone G60 is the bigger of the two Nuvifones. We’ll likely see it launching next month with a 3.55-inch touchscreen, GPS (of course), WiFi, 3G data connectivity, 3-megapixel camera and 4GB of on-board storage.The G60’s Linux-based OS struck us as both intuitive and speedy, but we’d have liked to have seen the G60 running Android.
For the Windows Mobile set, the Nuvifone M20 will bring its 2.8-inch touchscreen, GPS, WiFi, 3G, 3-megapixel camera and 4GB/8GB of built-in memory to the table. It’s smaller than the G60, but it’s also arguably more comfortable in the hand. Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional runs the show, but we won’t hold that against the M20.
Keep an eye out for a near-term launch of the Garmin-ASUS Nuvifone M20!
