First Garmin-Asus Android Smartphone Due Next Year



The Garmin-Asus joint venture plans to launch their first smartphone based on Google's Android mobile operating system no later than the first quarter of next year, executives said Tuesday in Taipei. The pairing hopes their location services make an Android smartphone even more compelling.

Garmin GPS technology will be used in the geotagging feature for photographs made using the handset, and will provide other location-based services, he said. Full details.

LIFEBOOK UH574

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
