Garmin nuvifone release date postponed

Garmin nuvifone release date postponed
Garmin’s navigation centric touchscreen nuvifone, will not be available for purchase this year as previously announced. The release date has been shifted towards the first half of 2009. The stated reason for this is that “… some of the carrier specific requirements will take longer than anticipated”. Pricing still remains unknown.

Ugly? You are such a sad individual ... most normal people are looking for functional phones and I believe this is going to be the most functional phone to date I hope it comes to Verizon so that it could be my dare and Nuvi 750 replacement :-) This thing is gorgeous

I dont think its ugly... but I think the design is just...very dated. The lip around the touch screen the plastic volume rocker, its not my cup of tea. But I do love Garmin, and the idea.

It's called having an opinion, just because one person has an opinion of it doesn't mean it's right, or that you or others think it is too.

Besides its amazing navigational capabilities, does anyone know if this phone will have smartphone capabilities to compete with the iphone? Not that I'm an iphone user, in fact I am a VZW customer... But so far it sounds like the blackberry thunder is the only thing coming to VZW that will overtake the smartphone world... I hope for two things... One is the fact that this phone will be a smart phone. and second, is that it comes to verizon.

Your opinion is not valued here. i suggest you find a new site

Wow, I'll agree with your sentiment on this one #9, but you have GOT TO check up on your grammar. Your syntax of speech doesn't even read like proper English! But I will, once again, agree with your sentiment. As for you jcrow, there are certainly more interesting things to do in life than to focus your online time to confronting others without having the audacity to actually face them, or others with a similar opinion, in person. In short... GET A LIFE!=)
