Garmin-Asus nüvifone M20 debuts at MWC 2009

Garmin-Asus announced their LBS smartphone partnership in early February. Today Garmin-Asus unveiled another new handset. The Garmin-Asus nüvifone M20 will debut at the MWC 2009 next week.
As the first Garmin-Asus nüvifone powered by Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional with enterprise email, the sleek and colorful Garmin-Asus nüvifone M20 is designed for on-the-go professionals who want a fashionable and functional smartphone to manage their busy work and personal lives.

The Garmin-Asus M20 combines a dual-band 3.5G/tri-band GSM phone with Wi-Fi connectivity, 2.8” TFT touch lens display, desktop-like internet browser, push email, document viewing, multi-media capability, Bluetooth, and Garmin sat nav. The Garmin-Asus M20 (please, just drop this stupid nuvifone sub-brand, nobody needs it) has a full QWERTY soft keyboard for text input on the touchscreen.
The GPS features of the M20 usher in apparently a level of sophistication never before seen on a Windows Mobile smartphone.
It has the navigation capability of a premium Garmin nüvi sat nav, and comes with preloaded maps and points of interest (POIs) – hotels, restaurants, stores, fuel stations, and more – for North America, Eastern and Western Europe, or other regions.
Selecting a destination is straightforward and requires limited input from the user. For example, users can search for a destination by typing in the specific name or address of an establishment, search by category, or navigate to addresses in the M20’s contact database or on the web. The device then gives turn-by-turn voice-prompted directions and automatically recalculates if a turn is missed along the way. In addition, the nüvifone includes quick access to online points of interest through internet enabled local search. The M20 harnesses the power of the worldwide web and information about local merchants and attractions is continually updated.
Garmin-Asus expects to announce the M20 pricing and availability information in the first half of 2009.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
