The Garmin-Asus partnership will result in the unveiling of an Android-powered mobile phone at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain (could this be the T-Mobile phone?). This according to Benson Lin, president of Asustek’s handheld device unit. He also added the Garmin-Asus plans to ship 4-5 Android or Windows Mobile phones in 2010 (hopefully 1 million units sold when all is said and done), one of which will be the M10.
The M10 is said to be a Windows Mobile 6.5.3-based handset, powered by Qualcomm’s 600 MHz 7224 processor and featuring a 3.5-inch WVGA resistive touchscreen, GPS and a 5 megapixel camera. The M10 will hit Taiwan initially for the equivalent of $434.40 in the United States. The partnership will also produce a TD-SCDMA phone for China Mobile that is supposed to ship in the 4th quarter of 2010.
