Garmin Unveils Nuvi Phone
Garmin makes GPS devices. Garmin makes navigation software and accessories for and . Garmin makes cell phones...wait, what? Yep, you read right. Today, the GPS manufacturer took the wraps off its first smartphone at a press event in New York: the Garmin Nuvi Phone. It's a GSM/ mobile that runs on Garmin's own operating system and focuses on, no surprise, navigation. The device will come preloaded with maps of North America (or Eastern or Western Europe for all our international readers) and points of interests. It features a 3.5-inch touch screen, Google Local Search integration, a Web browser, and e-mail capabilities. We're still getting details on this new smartphone and will report them to you as they come in but any initial thoughts?
