Garmin-Asus is no new player in the smartphone industry, but what’s new is their latest addition to the family, and also their first take on Google’s Android platform. Brewing in the vat for some time, the company released not one but two flavors of the Android smartphone to the market, the nuvifone A10 and A50.
Garmin-ASUS’ A50 Android Navigation Smartphone will be officially launched in Singapore on 30 October 2010. The professional-focused Android- powered smartphone is equipped with an app-centric smartphone platform that promises to deliver speed, power and versatility to its users.
In early 2009 Garmin and ASUS entered a partnership to co-develop the Garmin-ASUS navigation smartphones. And it looks like the collaboration is ending in January 2011 as Garmin has decided to pull out from the mobile phone market. Update: Official news release to change the current co-brand business modelinside.
Yesterday, Garmin-ASUS announced the launch of their nuvifone A10 and A50 Android phones, the first in the company’s portfolio. Both phones are equipped with NAVTEQ map content and provide voice-prompted turn-by-turn navigation. The A10 is available now, while the A50 will be available from end of October.
Today, Garmin-ASUS announced the launch of their latest A10 smartphone that is based on Google Android 2.1 platform. The A10 claims to provide the best experiences for users at navigating to their destination comfortably and fast.
