Garmin-Asus, a co-branded partnership with Garmin and Asus parent ASUSTek Computer, will show off two nuvifones at the GSMA Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Larry Dignan notes that the most important feature for both phones is called Ciao, which tracks your friend's location. He calls it "Google Latitude with a little more horsepower."

According to Garmin-Asus the nuvifone M20 (above) has navigation capability of a premium Garmin nuvi sat nav - complete with maps and points of interest.
