Garmin-Asus to launch Android phone, M10 WM phone at MWC

Garmin-Asus is reportedly getting ready to unveil its first Android smartphone at MWC 2010 (a few months later than initially predicted).

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.
