T-Mobile has officially released the Android powered Garminfone. This is the first Android smartphone that can also act as a Garmin GPS device. The Garminfone is all about navigation and it’s packed with some great features.
Android users are already familiar with Google Navigation which offers a pretty decent navigation experience. The Garminfone goes a step above that with more detailed voice guided turn-by-turn directions. You can even record your own custom voice with the Garmin Voice Studio. The Garminfone also comes with Garmin’s location based services that let you access real time traffic, weather and gas prices. More than likely you will want to mount this phone somewhere in your car. Thankfully the Garminfone comes with its own car mount kit with a built-in charger which is perfect for when you are using it as a GPS unit.
Of course the Garminfone also comes with all the great features Android users love like Android Market access, Google Mobile services and Microsoft Exchange support. T-Mobile customers can buy the Garminfone now for $199.99 with a 2-year contract or $499.99 without one. Find out more about the T-Mobile Garminfone by visiting http://garminfone.t-mobile.com.
