After more than a year of promises and plastic mock-ups, Garmin was finally able to come up with a working model of its Nuvifone G60 mobile handset.
But they had to take a partner on, to finally get the darn thing working. So from now own this LBS centric mobile phone will be known as Garmin Asus Nuvifone G60.
Still, it was worth the wait. I had a chance to spend some hands-on time with Garmin Asus Nuvifone G60 and came out impressed.
Nuvifone G60 is a full touchscreen phone with a big 3.55″ 272 x 480 WQVGA antiglare resistive touchscreen.
Even though it’s a resistive and not capacitative touchscreen, it is very responsive and handles the touch commands well. There’s also something to be said about the overall UI design.
It looks good , playful and I especially like all those big buttons that are really hard to miss even with really big fingers.
Here’s a video overview with most of the features of the Garmin Asus G60 Nuvifone:
You will not be seeing a Garmin Asus Nuvifone G60 in shops until this summer. But when you do, and you are looking for a full touchscreen handset, this one is definetely worth checking out.
And I’ll leave you now with some live pictures of the G60:
