Garmin's upcoming Nuviphone (rhymes with movie phone) may be the perfect 3.5-inch touchscreen device for iPhone users who get lost while staring at their nifty devices. It includes most of the features of an iPhone: Touchscreen, phone, browsing, video camera, digital camera, e-mail, callendar, etc. Plus, it also includes maps and Garmin's GPS tracking software. Nuviphone is expected to make its debut in the third quarter of 2008. For all the details, check out Jason D. O'Grady's blog.
