that it has been a year since Garmin announced
the nuvifone and that we still don't have a price or ETA on the highly-anticipated device.
What we do have is a few more nuggets on what the nuvifone G60 will pack:
- 3.55-inch display
- the same Ciao! buddy-finding software found in the Asus M20
- 3 megapixel autofocus camera with geotagging
- preloaded maps for either North American or Eastern and Western Europe
- "Where am I?" feature from the current nuvi automotive GPS receivers
Whether or not the nuvifone will be an "iPhone killer" remains to be seen, but one thing's for sure: Garmin's GPS software and UI is the one to beat.
Hopefully the nuvifone will light a fire under Apple to release/allow true turn-by-turn GPS navigation for the iPhone.
