After the sleek Android-powered Garmin-Asus nuvifone A50
in the U.S.), the joint venture is now introducing its second Android model, the Garmin-Asus A10
. As its name suggests, the A10 will be slightly less equipped, mounting a 3.2-inch HVGA touch-sensitive screen, instead of the 3.5-inch panel found on the A50. The Garmin-Asus A10 is said to be a pedestrian-friendly navigation-centric smartphone, so we hope to see some interesting new functionality for those users who enjoy walking.
Anyway, one thing is for sure, and that is the fact that all the map data will be stored on the handset, freeing you from the need to have an active data connection. Other features of the A10 include a GPS (no way!), 1500mAh battery and the Android operating system, probably with the manufacturer's customized interface on top.
The Garmin-Asus A10 is expected to launch in mid-2010
, but its price is still unannounced. Anyone up for a walk?
