Garmin-Asus’ Handset Due Q1 ’10 or Sooner

gps_garmin_nuvifoneGarmin-Asus, a joint product venture between GPS maker Garmin and PC maker Asus(tek) plan to launch their first smartphone based on Android no later than the first quarter of next year (2010).  It’s possible it might even arrive earlier according to associate vice president of marketing Jacqueline Yang.  Speaking on the sidelines of a recent press conference, she demurred when cost came up.

Location-based services and features are sure to be front and center when Garmin-Asus releases their Android device.  It will be interesting to see how Google maps are used when GPS is the backbone of the phone. Will Garmin’s experience feel more like an an ehanced GPS device or will it feel like a smart phone with highly sophisticated location services? More importantly, how will this phone stand out in a field of growing smartphones (running Android) with apps like TeleNav GPS on it?
