Garmin-Asus reveal nüvifone G60 specifications

Garmin-Asus nüvifone G60

Just days before the start of the Mobile World Congress, Garmin-Asus has released the final specifications of the upcoming nüvifone G60.

The nüvifone G60 was developed with an LBS-centric design philosophy. Location information is added to everyday applications including email, SMS, photo sharing, social networking and more in order to enhance applications and share location information with others.

The G60 is none other than the original nüvifone that Garmin has been working on for over a year. It received a new model number when Garmin and Asus announced a new partnership earlier this month and plans for other nüvifones.

The Garmin-Asus nüvifone G60 is powered by a Linux operating system. It comes with quad-band (850/900/1800/1900MHz) GSM/GPRS/EDGE and tri-band (850/1900/2100MHz) HSDPA connectivity, a 3.55-inch WQVGA (272 by 480) touchscreen display (with three primary icons – "Call," "Search," and "View Map" and secondary icons on the side), 128MB RAM and 4GB flash memory, built-in GPS, 802.11 b/g Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.0 (with A2DP), built-in accelerometer, a 3MP camera with auto-focus and geo-tagging, a microSDHC card slot (up to 16GB), and a 1100mAh battery. It measures 112 by 58.1 by 14.6 millimeters and weighs 137 grams (with battery).

Garmin-Asus will announce pricing and availability details later in the first half of 2009.
