T-Mobile slices Garminfone price again, this time for existing customers only
With tongue in cheek, we could say that Garmin's corporate partner Asus knew that the handsets wouldn't sell after all. When speculation surfaced early this month saying that the Garminfone was not selling, the company said that the phone was ringing up the cash register "as previously planned" which, at the time we reported on the story to you, was estimated at a mind boggling low 20,000 units sold.
Perhaps T-Mobile customers will see the new price as the proper level for the device. In an economy that is based on supply and demand, products tend to rise or fall to the price level that they deserve to be at. Or, it just could be that Garmin's smartphones are finding it too difficult to compete against the iPhone and Android toting models. Since most mid to high-end phones today have capable GPS functionality, for the Garminfone to outsell the competition, it would have to offer the same browsing, YouTube, multimedia and phone experiences as the other handsets. Take this into consideration and it's no mystery why the Garminfone is following the course set by the nuvifone G60.
