Camera and Multimedia:

Since the Garmin-Asus nuvifone M20 is a navigation-oriented smartphone, we can’t expect a thrilling multimedia experience. The 3MP camera with AF has an archaic interface. We have included several pictures shot with it, but bear in mind that the results could be much different when we get the final unit.

The audio player looks nice and delivers simplified interface showing large sized album art that takes up the best of the screen. The preloaded app that lets you cut parts of songs and save them as ringtones makes for a nice extra feature indeed.

Expectations:

Much like the Nokia 6710 Navigator and the HTC Touch Cruise, the Garmin-Asus nuvifone M20 is an alternative to standalone navigation systems. Having one of the top names in the field of navigation manufacture it is certainly an advantage, but the outcome will be decided by the interface optimization and usability of the maps. And to be able to fight the tough competition, the device must also perform adequately as a phone, meaning good in-call and audio quality, durable battery and reliable performance.
