Garmin and Asus have teamed up on smartphones before with navigation at the core, and honestly, the devices were not that good. The two are back with new smartphones that will be seen at MWC in Spain and on paper, the new A50 looks very nice. The A50 is an Android phone.

The A50 claims to have more location technology than any other smartphone. The device sports Garmin turn-by-turn navigation with voice prompts that work for walking or driving. The screen of the handset is a 3.5-inch HVGA capacitive touchscreen.

Data input is done by using a QWERTY onscreen keyboard with predictive text for faster typing. Internal storage is 4GB and the handset has a microSD card slot for expansion. The A50 also has an accelerometer for changing the screen orientation. Garmin navigation is preloaded and the phone is designed for 3G web surfing. Pricing and specific availability are unknown and the handset is set for launch in Europe in the second half of the year. I am sure the handset will come to America as well.
