This phone has taken far too long to reach the market and it’s already lost some of that initial shine even before it hit store shelves. Even so, it seems that the Garmin nuvifone G60 was worth the wait, because Mobileburn is saying that it could offer the best navigation experience on a cell phone today.
You get all the usual bells and whistles associated with most touchscreen smartphones these days, so you can expect to get a camera, mobile web access, a virtual QWERTY keyboard with predictive text, and so on. But what about the navigation?
Since we are coming from GPS-centric Garmin, we should expect the best turn-by-turn GPS navigation experience on a cell phone and it seems that Garmin has delivered on that front. Just as the iPhone was originally seen as a cool iPod and not so big on the “phone” side, the Garmin nuvifone suffers a similar fate.
Mobileburn concludes that it is a great GPS device, but only an “OK” phone. The rest of the features and specs run par for the course, for the most part, and that makes it hard to justify the higher price point. The browsing speeds are slow, the battery life is short, and there’s no car charger included.
