Garmin-Asus to launch Android phone, M10 WM phone at MWC
There are no exact details about the upcoming Android handset, but it looks like it won’t be Garmin-Asus’ only device to run Google’s OS: Asustek’s president Benson Lin recently mentioned that they’ll have 4 or 5 new smartphones this year, based on both Android and Windows Mobile.
And speaking of Windows Mobile, MWC is also the place where Garmin-Asus will unveil the M10 (possibly part of the nuvifone series). Apparently running WM 6.5.3, the M10 should feature a 3.5 inch WVGA touchscreen display, GPS, 600MHz Qualcomm processor, and a 5MP camera.
The Garmin-Asus M10 should be available starting February (in Taiwan, at least), retailing at about $435.
The Taiwanese joint venture also plans to launch a TD-SCDMA phone for China, sometime in the fourth quarter of 2010.
