A user survey sent out by Garmin may have shown some of the manufacturer's cards for their upcoming nüvifone
. The survey purportedly asks users: "Now, how likely would you be to buy the Garmin nüvifone (for yourselfor as a gift) if offered by AT&T for $499.99 with a two yearcontract? You would be required to have both a data plan that wouldinclude unlimited Internet browsing and unlimited Navigation for $19.99per month and one of the standard voice rate plans for a monthly fee."
The feature set is pretty impressive- 3.5" touchscreen, HSDPA, WiFi, media player, 3 megapixel camera and, of course, GPS- but $500 on contract seems a bit steep. Here's hoping the user feedback brings that price down some before the targeted 3Q release.
