Unconfirmed Rumor: Garmin to Debut Android Device at MWC

As we near the Mobile World Congress next month, the rumored handsets and announcements are likely to start pouring in.  DigiTimes is reporting today that Garmin plans to unveil a handful of smartphones in Barcelona, one of which will be running Android.

The Garmin-Asustek team plans to unveil its first Android-powered smartphone at the upcoming Mobile World Congress (MWC) trade fair, according to Benson Lin, president of Asustek’s handheld device business unit.

We’ll just have to wait and see if this proves to be true.  There are no specs, pricing, or carrier details to report as of yet.  For comparison, they plan to debut a Windows Mobile phone with a 600MHz processor, a 3.5-inch WVGA resistive touch screen, 5-megapixel camera, and GPS of course.
