Satnav meets smartphone

Gartner critical capabilities for enterprise endpoint backup

More generally, I liked the 3.5mm headset connector on the top of the device, and the processor despite being slow on paper at 600MHz, coped well. Battery life was pretty good too, managing to get through a day of average use including some GPS without needing a charge, but a daily boost, as with all smartphones, is going to be required.

Garmin Nuvifone M10

A capable phone, just a bit late to the WinMo party

Verdict

With Windows Phone 7 now very close to release, the timing of this Garmin Asus collaboration does seem a bit tardy. I’m holding my breath to see the A10 Android alternative, but if you’re more interested in having a dedicated satnav phone than the latest fashion in smartphones, then the Nüvifone M10 certainly offers more than most for this task. ®
