Garmin and T-Mobile USA have just announced a sleek-looking full-touch 3G Android smartphone and superb navigation device rolled into one: the T-Mobile Garminfone. It not only looks good, but should also be able to serve you quite well when you’re on the go and need a quick guide to your destination.
Being a product of Garmin, the Garminfone offers a premium navigation experience, akin to what a standalone GPS device would do either on hand or on the dashboard of a car. Android and Google Maps plus various other web services make things even more convenient and easier for users.
The T-Mobile Garminfone comes pre-loaded with maps of maps of North America, voice-guided navigation with text-to-speech directions and a database of about 6 million points of interest. It also boasts hardware features like a 3.5-inch capacitive touchscreen display, built-in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1, 3G, full web browser and a 3-megapixel autofocus camera with digital zoom. And for use in cars, it comes with a charging window and dashboard mount that enables charging while the phone is in use.
The Android-powered Garminfone can be expected to become available exclusively on T-Mobile USA later this spring for a still unannounced price.
