Garmin-ASUS M10 nüvifone Available for Preorder in Taiwan

All eyes might be on Android these days when it comes to the next nüvifone, but it turns out  Garmin-asus isn’t done with Windows Mobile just yet (at least in Taiwan). Preorders have started for the M10, which will offer a 3.5” 800 x 480 display, 600 MHz processor, and cruise on 900/2100 HSPA and 900/1800/1900 EDGE bands. The existing Windows Mobile nüvifone has already enjoyed a 6.5 update, but this M10 is apparently running the new 6.5.3, which we caught a look at during CES. If you haven’t been acquainted with the nüvifone family, they’re basically a navigation-centric smartphone family. The Linux version that came out on AT&T didn’t make a big splash, but I’m still hopeful for the concept, especially if Garmin-asus can do good things with Android. If you happen to be in Taiwan, you can preorder the nüvifone M10 here for about $USD 450, and expect to see it on your doorstep on February 6.
