Garmin-Asus has confirmed that it will be launching a Windows Mobile 6.5.3
powered handset called the M10. This version of Windows Mobile 6.5 is expected to come with a thinner task bar on top. The M10 will launch next month in Taiwan and is part of their nuvifone series. The display is a 3.5 inch WVGA (480 x 800 pixels) touchscreen, loaded with Garmin GPS software of course (would you order Chinese food from McDonalds?) and featuring a 5MP camera and Wi-Fi. The processor runs at 600MHz and the handset comes with 512MB of RAM and ROM. 4GB of internal memory in on the handset and the microSD slot is expandable to 32GB. The device will retail for 13,900 dollars. Taiwan dollars that is, which translates into $435 U.S. Dollars. If you're in Taiwan now, you can pre-order the device at the source link. Oh, expect to see this beauty at the MWC next month along with the joint ventures' first Android device, currently unnamed. Garmin-Asus is expected to launch 4 or 5 new handsets this year with Windows Mobile and Android flavoring, according to Asustek's president, Benson Lin.
