Garmin nuvifone G60 to make navigation easier for AT&T customers
AT&T has just announced the latest addition the its lineup and this time, customers of the carrier will receive a new navigation solution in the form of the Garmin nuvifone G60. In contrast to the Garmin-Asus nuvifone M20, which uses Windows Mobile, the G60 is powered by the manufacturer’s own Linux-based operating system. It will be available on October 4 for $299 with a two-year contract and after a $100 mail-in rebate.

The phone will be quite usable to those who find it difficult to find their bearings. It will integrate various GPS-centric services with basic apps found on every phone. For example, it will be easy to get directions to a location of an event, marked in the user’s calendar, or to the address of contact from the phonebook.

Other than that, the companies promise that millions of POIs around the U.S. will be available on the maps. In addition, customers can take advantage of a service, called “Where am I?”, which will provide the user’s coordinates as well as the nearest intersection, hospital, police station and so on.

Using the Garmin nuvifone G60 in a car should also be a piece of cake, since the carrier will bundle the device with a dashboard and wind-shield mount.

Specs-wise, the G60 is pretty high-tech, featuring a 3.5-inch resistive touchscreen, 3MP autofocus camera, Wi-Fi and microSDHC slot (for up to 4GB of additional storage space).
