Asus and Garmin Make an Android

Tuesday, November 10th, 2009

garmin_asus_final1I just love company tie ups, and Asus – Garmin is one particular company I am interested in. I have yet to see any of their old devices first hand, though I am aware of the M20 and G60 by reputation. The G60 in particular got my attention when it launched as it used the Linux mobile operating system. I admit that I am a little biased towards Windows mobile. As much as I appreciate their desktop OS, the mobile versions of Windows are far too clumsily made for me. So when Garmin-Asus finally announced that they are working on an Android smart phone, it totally got my attention.

Right now, details are scarce on this upcoming Android mobile phone, no word yet on which version of the Android OS they will be using but I wager that it will be the Android 1.6 Donut. The 2.0 Éclair is being rather elusive and has yet to become the standard version for this generation of mobile phones. Makes wonder why the transition is taking too long. Google is rumored to be working on version 2.1 already and reports are saying that the new Android operating system will be named Flan.

Another important spec that we are waiting confirmation on is the actual processor that will be used for Garmin-Asus’ upcoming Android mobile phone. The original GA nuviphone G60 was pretty slick, though it lacked some important 3G functions, most especially a virtual keyboard.

At least Asustek is familiar with making good display screen thanks to their mini laptops. This new Android is bound to have at least 3.5 inches of touch screen, would it be too much to ask for multi touch? The last thing we want to see is a non-touch screen Android phone. Anyway, all the details are too sketchy to pass judgment on at this time; we are going to wait a little bit more for updates.
