Last year at Mobile World Congress we had our first glimpse of the Garmin Nuviphone. Now a year later, after much speculation and rumour, we now have an alliance between Garmin and Asus with 2 Nuviphones being announced.

The Garmin-Asus G60 Nuviphone is the original device we saw last year. The software is nearing completion and this will be available summer 2009. This device is based on the Linux operating system.

The second device on display was the Garmin-Asus M20 is a Windows Mobile based smartphone. This was obviously less developed and was locked away in display cases to prevent us playing...

With the recent announcement of Garmin joining the Android Alliance one can only assume that we will see at least one other version of the Nuviphone software for Android devices.

We interview Garmin's Clive Taylor about the Garmin-Asus venture and he demos the Nuviphone G60.

i like the interface! looks good. i also think the integration of calendar meetings with the navigation is a very nice touch - although i wonder how useful that will be if you have no gps signal? was their any mention of it using cell-triangulation to 'guess' a location for that feature?

also, i noticed it's on 'movistar' in spain - from what i understand they are essentially 'o2'. any news on operators for uk and likely cost/tarrifs etc?
