T-Mobile’s Launching the Garminfone Today

June 9, 2010 - Written By Chris Yackulic

With all of the noise about the HTC EVO 4G‘s launch and Steve Jobs’ latest 3.5-inch Apple device (I am trying to refrain from calling it by its name, here), we almost forgot that T-Mobile’s got something launching today: the T-Mobile Garminfone.

Available for $199.99 after a $50 rebate on a two-year contract, it’ll be powered by Android 1.6 and will run a custom user interface on top of it by Garmin-ASUS packed chock full of navigation-centric goodies. The interface will make it easier for navigation buffs to operate whether you’re on foot or on wheels.
