Garmin is planning an Android-powered phone in 2010.

The company laid out the plans on a presentation that went with its third quarter earnings call. The find, noted by GSM Arena earlier this week, highlights that Garmin is serious about the Nuvifone, which has questionable prospects and decidedly mixed reviews. Neowin notes that the Nuvifone has Windows Mobile and Linux versions, but little traction thus far.
