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.
