T-Mobile USA today announced the upcoming, exclusive availability of the new Garminfone, the first Android smartphone with Garmin GPS functionality.
As reported before the Garminfone is a full-touch 3G smartphone with a 3.5-inch screen integrated with Garmin full GPS solution. Good thing the whole nuvi branding is gone - T-Mobile Garminfone sounds cool.

music player and a 3-megapixel autofocus camera round out the offering.
Garminfone is expected to be available in the U.S. exclusively to T-Mobile customers later this spring.
