Garmin-Asus Nuvifone G60’s release pushed back to Q3 2009
Last time we heard about it, the launch of Garmin-Asus’ Nuvifone G60 was planed for the first half of 2009.
However, now Garmin says that its very first smartphone will not hit the market until the third quarter of the year.
That’s because, as Garmin’s president Cliff Pemble mentioned, it’s difficult to build from the ground up a smartphone based on a custom Linux OS. Well, we can’t say we disagree.
So in the end it looks like the G60 may be released at about the same time with the Windows Mobile 6.1 M20. Now let’s hope that there will be no more delays announced by Garmin-Asus.
