A little more than a year back, Garmin-ASUS released their first Windows Mobile phone, M20, fast-forward to today, they released their second Windows Mobile phone, M10. And nope, you are not mistaken, neither did I. Garmin-ASUS indeed numbered their Windows Mobile phone line in reverse order.

That aside, M10 still manages to snagged a few first, being the first few phones to sport Windows Mobile 6.5.3, first Smart3 phone (Garmin-ASUS’s own branded Smart Lifestyle, Smart Phone, Smart Navigation), among others. Of course, it is indisputable that among all mobile phones in the market, Garmin-ASUS’s navigation is one of the best around, noting that it uses the highly respected Garmin technology.

Once again a question comes forth, is this phone a iPhone-killer? With almost everyone jumping to compare anything and everything to the iPhone, this may very well be a question that the designers and engineers at Garmin-ASUS are asking themselves too. But, whether or not this phone is the iPhone-killer or not, it is still a phone in its own right.
