T-Mobile gets official with GarminFone, Android Phone, not Nuvi

By: t-marco April 21st, 2010

Finally T-Mobile unleash another Android phone, this time by Garmin. Just few months ago, we mentioned that FCC approved a new Asustek phone with AWS bands. Now its finally here. T-Mobile just launched the new Garminfone today. This new Android phone will feature 3MP camera with autofocus  microSD expansion up to 32GB, WiFi, and full HSPA, Android 1.6 maybe,  a 3.5-inch HVGA display. It’ll come bundled with a charging dash / windshield mount when it launches “later this Spring.” Follow the break for the full press release. It will come in 2 colors, gray and black.

Because maps are on the phone, rather than streamed over the Web, the navigation system will work even in areas where there is no wireless signal, using GPS. There won’t be additional service fees for the Garmin service but the company will charge for additional maps, and more frequent updates of the U.S. map than the one annual free update provided with the phone.

    I’m really loving the theme/design of your web site.

    Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility
    problems? A couple of my blog readers have complained about
    my site not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Safari.
    Do you have any advice to help fix this problem?
