Garmin-Asus Announce Pedestrian-Friendly A10

Garmin Ltd. and ASUSTeK Computer Inc. (Garmin-Asus) have officially announced their next Android-based handset, the A10. This time around, the company is turning their focus to pedestrians and personal navigation. The A10 comes with a 3.2-inch HVGA touch display, a 5-megapixel camera with auto-focus, and a 1500mAh battery.

Garmin gas preloaded the phone with detailed maps to help eliminate the need for servers to update locations. This also ensures that users don’t drop their turn-by-turn directions in the event they lose cellular coverage. And what would a Garmin device be without automobile-ready navigation? The A10 comes with a powered audio mount that magnifies the volume for the times users decide to get back into a car.

The device comes with a host of Google applications installed, including YouTube, Google Maps, and Gmail and is compatible with Microsoft Exchange server. There’s an optional cityXplorer Maps, application available which helps users plan routes using public transit (bus, rail, tram).

Look for the Garmin-Asus A10 around the middle of the year in Europe and Asia-Pacific.
