Garmin-ASUS looking at limited August launch for G60; full release seen by year end
Garmin-ASUS is now looking at a limited August launch for the nuvifone G60 according to the partnerships' Director of  Southeast-Asia sales, Hektor Tung. Mr. Tung said that the touchscreen device would be released by the end of the year with some markets getting the phone as early as August. The G60 will be the last model offered by Garmin-ASUS to use a home grown version of Linux, according to the executive, who revealed that the duo's undisclosed open OS models will be powered by Android. By making the switch to Google's open source OS, the manufacturer plans on avoiding the problems that have cropped up with the G60's use of new hardware and custom software, a combination that is blamed for the current delays in releasing the unit. Besides using Android in future open OS models, the nuvifone M20 is expected to be running on Windows Mobile.
