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.
Garmin-ASUS A10 is not a perfect phone and there are some downsides to it but it is the first Android smartphone to incorporate Garmin's renowned GPS system. With a GPS you will surely never miss a place.
