Garmin-Asus unveils the nüvifone M20 Windows Mobile smartphone
Well, it sure didn’t take long for Garmin-Asus to unveil their second co-branded handset, after the nüvifone G60.
The new device is called nüvifone M20 and it was announced today, during a pre-MWC 2009 event.
Presented as “an all-in-one phone, mobile web-browser and premium navigation system”, the handset surprisingly runs on Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional.
The M20 looks good overall, but its design might be seen as a bit too simple.
Anyway, here’s an almost complete list with the specs and features of the new smartphone:
- Quad-band GSM/EDGE connectivity
- Tri-band HSDPA connectivity
- 2.8 inch VGA touchscreen display
- Full QWERTY soft keyboard
- Built-in GPS
- Garmin sat nav
- Connected Services – a suite of Web-based apps which provide “location intelligence to navigation, phone and browser functions”
- Ciao! – a ground-breaking LBS app
- Desktop-like internet browser
- Push email
- 3.0 MP autofocus camera
- 4GB / 8GB of internal memory
Garmin-Asus said that details regarding nüvifone M20’s availability and price will be unveiled before the end of 2009’s first half.
Until then, though, we’ll have the chance to see the M20 live, at MWC, so stick around if you want to see it too.
