Garmin-Asus Nuvifone M20 shipping next month


These two smartphones have seen a very slow run to market, but Malaysian website reports the handset will finally ship in that area within the next 30 days.

Interestingly the Windows Mobile powered M20 at RM2,099 ($589) will cost more than the linux-based G60 RM1,799 ($505), but this of course is easy to explain due to the increased functionality of the device.
