Mobile Syrup reports that the carrier is readying the release of a Garmin nufivone – but it’s not clear yet if this is the same device that AT&T launched in the US in the autumn of 2009. Hopefully, it isn’t, because AT&T’s nuvifone was nothing short of a disaster when it comes to sales (being too expensive and offering a rather unpleasant user experience).
Reportedly, the Telus-bound nuvifone has a 3.5 inch touchscreen display, Wi-Fi, Garmin GPS navigation, 3MP camera, and MicroSD card support. These features resemble the ones of AT&T’s nuvifone G60 (seen below), but also the ones of T-Mobile’s Android-based Garmin smartphone.
It’s said that Telus plans to introduce its Garmin phone in early June, so we’ll find out more about it then.
