We’ve been waiting around for Garmin-Asus to provide some additional direction on their line of smartphones, and today the company officially announced the specs for their M10 and A50 phones.
For the most party the M10 sounds like your typical smartphone – touchscreen, WinMo 6.5.3, etc – but will of course provide turn-by-turn directions that should be unparalleled by any other handset. Other specs for the handset include a 3.5 WVGA touchscreen display, 512MB of RAM, 512MB of ROM, 4GB of storage, WiFi b/g and HSDPA. It will have a 1500 mAh battery and be equipped with a 5 megapixel camera.
The A50 on the other hand is an Android based handset and sports a smaller, but still useful 3 megapixel camera. Other specs include GPS (duh), Bluetooth, a microSD card slot with 4GB of internal storage, 3G support and a 3.5-inch touchscreen. Purportedly, the handset will support multitouch in the WebKit browser.
There still no word on a price or launch date for these handsets, but expect more details to emerge at the MWC.
Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
