Short video promo stars T-Mobile's Garminfone
It's tough to think back and wonder if the Garmin Nuvifone G60 received any kind of video promotion seeing that it was the first handset to combine the great aspects of Garmin's GPS interface onto a phone. As we all eventually saw that the Nuvifone G60 wasn't well received by many, it quickly faded into the shadows and probably gave Garmin a black eye. However, their choice to be on board with Android in their latest device for T-Mobile might be good enough to erase any hidden thoughts tucked away in our minds. Thankfully this time around, the T-Mobile Garminfone is being backed with a short advertising spot that gives customers a slight inkling of what to expect with the smartphone. The obvious implementations are there as the video shows how it can be used on the go – whether you're just looking for walking directions or if you're driving in the car. The success of this handset can undoubtedly seal Garmin-Asus's fate as a viable mobile phone manufacturer and whether they are able to compete in a space that's already littered with other Android handsets that offer free navigation.

its a nice phone actually. the garmin overlays are pretty annoying to me, but for someone that uses navigation constantly, i guess it would be pretty useful. that wide screen is nice though, as well as the multitouch capability. Too bad its got a small camera and runs 1.6 tho. They coulda made it a contender had they upped the specs a bit.

Decent looking phone but horrible commercial. "Yeaaah, yeaahh, yeeaaahhh, yeeeaaahhh!"
