Called the nuvifone, Garmin has stuffed a GPS, phone, and touchscreen into a sleek, hand held device. Garmin touts that the device is easy to use, so it’s 3.5-inch display only offers three main buttons: Call, Search, and View Map. Interestingly, when the device is docked onto is vehicle mount, the nuvifone automatically goes into GPS mode. The phone is able to seamlessly transition from taking a phone call to GPS mode and vice versa.
One of the requested features on the iPhone is a real GPS system, this *may* be an alternative.
The nuvifone will hit stores around Q3 2008, with an unknown price tag.
UPDATE: The nuviphone also features HSDPA, quad-band GSM, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth. It also supports MP3 and MPEG4/AAC file formats.
