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.

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.
