Mobile Burn is in Barcelona and having a grand ‘ol time with the Garmin-Asus G60.  For those who aren’t familiar with the G60, it is a join effort by Garmin and Asus that is trying to be the be all end all as far as cell phone GPS is concerned.  The body of the G60 definitely more closely resembles an actual GPS device with it’s relatively brick-like appearance.  However, it’s feature set of SMS, email, 3G, WiFi among others show this phone to be serious on the communication side of things as well.  For all of the visual learners out there, a video is after the click provided by Mobile Burn

The much  talked about Garmin-Asus pairing is finally coming to light today as Garmin and Asus have spilled the beans on the latest nuvifone…the M20.  The M20 will feature Windows Mobile 6.1 (sorry Android hopefuls).  A 2.8 QVGA touchscreen as well as GPS navigation…*obviously*.  The radios stuffed inside include quad-band EDGE/Tri-band HSDPA (up to 7.2Mbps) as well as WiFi and Bluetooth.  Other tasty tid bits include weather, real-time traffic and movie times.  If you’re interested in bringing a ton of files on board with you, take a mental note that it only comes in 4GB and 8GB storage sizes so you’ll have to choose wisely the files you want to bring with you on the road.  One last thing to round out the package is a new service that Garmin has dubbed “Ciao”.  Think of it as another version of Google Latitude to find friends.  Pricing and availability will be out soon…as in the first half of the year.  Full rundown on the specs and plenty of eye candy…step inside…

Garmin Nuvi Phone shows its face…kinda.

For some time now, Garmin has remained pretty quiet on their iPhone competitor the Nuvi Phone.  Obviously being a GPS manufacturer, the phone is going to be heavily based around GPS.  Other features besides GPS will be your standard smart phone features such as email, web browsing, multimedia, etc.  Electronista has acquired pretty decent set of screenshots of the UI.  Electronista makes note of certain iPhonesque features in the UI.  While I see certain placements of icons being similar, the overall look is more “cartoony” to me.  Not the best in the handset world, but certainly leaps and bounds ahead of WinMo!  I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again.  The Nuvi phone, while not being exactly my cup of tea, will just make other manufactures work that much harder, meaning more competition and better products for us the consumer.  Bring it on Garmin!   Take a minute or two to look through the images below courtesy of Electronista.
