Garmin-Asus M10 previewed


CNET Asia has published a first take preview of the Garmin-Asus Nuvifone M10, the successor of the M20.

The handset, which is available for pre-order from Asus’ Taiwan Web site for NT$13,900 (US$434), has some updated features compared to the earlier device.

The WVGA screen is now 3.5 inches, rather than the ridiculous 2.8 inches, which is much too small for a navigation-focussed device. The M10 also has much more RAM, at 512 MB, which should help snappy performance and multi-tasking. There is only 512 MB Flash storage, 4 GB built-in storage and finally, an actual MicroSD card, corrected a major oversight of the M20.

The smartphone will run on a 600 Mhz processor, likely a Qualcomm MSM7227, be powered by a 1500 mAh battery, and measures 116 x 58 x 14.3 mm.

It will also come with Windows Mobile 6.5.3, which should help finger-navigation immensely, and is expected to ship in March 2010.
