Now Asus can focus on making good phones

One of the smartphone industry's least-successful relationships is about to end. Digitimes reports that Asustek Computer will not renew their dual-brand partnership contract with Garmin. The agreement expires in January of 2011. At that time, Asus will begin to operate their handset business alone.

Reportedly, this break is so that Asustek can develop its own brand without needing to heed Garmin's demands. They plan to break away from location based handsets and navigation-focused devices.
