FCC approves Garmin's Nuviphone
After being talked for quite some time, Garmin's Nuviphone has been approved by the FCC. It looks like this variant of the GPS manufacturer's foray into the mobile phone industry will be suitable for AT&T customers it has UMTS support for the 850/1900 MHz bands. Everyone has been looking with anticipation to see how Garmin will make its transition to an already competitive market. The phone will come with Garmin's GPS software we have all seen, Wi-Fi, and a 3-megapixel camera. Originally slated for the holiday season, we will probably see this device come out within the first six months of the new year.

the heck with it. the only thing useful would be for talking, data, and such. it already has gps, which is great. unless if they make it a-gps, then it would be crap (cuz you would be outside 3g coverage, regardless of att or verizon, and it would suck)
