T-Mobile cuts the price of the Android-powered Garminfone to $129 after rebates

Well, that didn’t take long. Mere weeks after launch, T-Mobile’s Garminfone, the love child that resulted from the partnership between Asus and Garmin, is now $70 cheaper.

After rebates, on new 2-year contracts, this Android-powered navigation-centric phone can now be yours for $129.99. Furthermore, it looks like T-Mobile are also throwing in a “buy one, get one free” offer for the Garminfone, HTC HD2 and the myTouch 3G Slide. This applies to family packages and the offer ends on July 20th, so you’d better hurry!

Here’s what you get if you choose the Garminfone:

  • 3.5″ 320 x 480 capacitive multi-touch screen
  • 4 GB of internal storage, expandable via microSD card slot
  • HSDPA 3.6 Mb/s
  • WiFi 802.11 b/g
  • Bluetooth 2.0 with A2DP
  • an autofocus 3.15 Megapixel camera
  • aGPS and Garmin Navigation

Will the Garminfone be able to sell better after this price reduction, especially in light of very well-rounded competitors on T-Mobile, such as the Samsung Vibrant?

Only time will tell.

    This seems like a 6 year old design never updated. Garmin does not provide any specs for their GPS equipment and is not providing any thing new for the changing GPS scene nor following recent Android trends. List the features and capabilities that are on the best selling new Android phones that are not available here? Is this Garmin's or Asus's fault?
