Garmin nüvifone lost until 2009

Garmin pretty much covers all the bases when it comes to personal navigation systems, be they car sat navs or mobile phone software.

However in January they created quite a bit of excitement with the announcement of the touch screen nüvifone integrating the best of their navigation experience with a phone and user interface to match that of the iPhone 3G.

The specification of the handset certainly looked impressive, perhaps too much so, as they are now finding difficult to meet operator demands delaying delivery from the profitable Christmas stocking end of 2008 to the Easter egg spot in 2009. At least its camera will take videos.

iPhone 3G feature wish for the day –
Why can’t emails be read or created in landscape? The old Alcatel One Touch Com touch screen phone from 1998 could.
