The ASUS Android Phone: Garmin-Asus A10

ASUS is not only about laptops, desktops and other computer peripherals because ASUS is also about mobile phones. The company had recently released its newest mobile phone on the Android platform, the ASUS nüvifone A10.

ASUS in 2009 through its brand Garmin-ASUShas brought to market two nüvifone models, one powered by a Linux-based OS and the other powered by Windows Mobile. This time ASUS is releasing iots newest phone with a stylistic design.

By the looks of it you may find it similar with other phone but Garmin-ASUS A10 has a leverage. It uses the Smart3 philosophy to create a tightly integrated experience for communication, navigation, social networking and location-based services.

This phone offers a touchscreen-based experience on the bright vivid 3.2-inch HVGA touch-capacitive screen. Garmin-ASUS A10 is powered by the Eclair (2.1) with a twist. Its homescreen starts off with a navigation widget that is akin to a standalone GPS receiver. The A10 is also imbued with Qualcomm's gpsOne hybrid A-GPS solution.
