During a conference call with analysts, Garmin confirmed that its nüvifone (originally due in the third quarter of 2008) is in final testing with U.S. carriers. Garmin would not reveal the carriers that are testing the product.
We were very excited about the nüvifone for quite a while, but given that the specs for the nüvifone remain unchanged from when it was initially announced, we have to wonder if the phone will still be competitive by the time it actually reaches consumers hands. After all, we’ve seen a new iPhone, lots of progress with Android, and the new Palm Pre since the nüvifone was announced. What do you think? Does the nüvifone still stand a good chance at competing with other smartphones on the market today?
