The Garmin-Asus Nuvifone is vaporware no more! Boy Genius has unveiled some information about several upcoming AT&T smartphones, the G60 among them. The nuvifone G60 is a collaboration between the famed GPS manufacturer Garmin and PC-manufacturer Asus. It will cost $299 with a 2-year contract after a $100 mail-in rebate.
That's a bit pricey for even a high-end smartphone. The G60 has a 3 megapixel camera, a 3.5" touchscreen, a Linux-based OS, 3G capability, and a Garmin GPS. To be honest, the nuvifone doesn't sound quite as awesome now as it did a year ago. That said, having a quality GPS built-in will save users the expense of a TomTom car set. No release date has yet been announced, but it's expected out before the end of October.
The price of the AT&T Tilt 2, out October 6th, has also been announced. It'll cost $299 with a $50 MIR. The AT&T Pure (aka, Touch Diamond2) should be out around the same time, for just $199 after a $50 MIR. Good news for AT&T customers. Anyone here planning to grab one of these smartphones?
