This device may not be the most anticipated, but we’re sure it’ll attract at least a few customers. The first Android-powered smartphone with Garmin GPS Navigation is now available for $199.99 (After a $50 mail in rebate) with a 2 year contract and $449.99 retail.
In terms of sheer specs, the Garminfone is pretty mid-range: 3 megapixel camera with autofocus, Wi-Fi, 3G, Bluetooth, Android 1.6, and 3.5? 320 x 480 touchscreen. Obviously the big sell with the Garminfone are the navigation features – storing 2 GB-worth of maps locally, you’ll always have location information available regardless of signal, and with a myriad of GPS and location sensors, the Garminfone can get a lock relatively quickly. The maps include points of interest, and extra custom software allows you to plan routes and track logs.
