Garmin nuvifone at FCC

Garmin's long-delayed nuvifone, originally expected to ship in summer of this year, may finally be nearing release, documents show. The nuvifone G60 has passed through the FCC, under the moniker of the ASUS Calf; this could indicate that ASUS is responsible for actually building the phone, while Garmin handles aspects of software, direction and branding. Phones approved by the FCC typically ship within a few months, though this is not guaranteed.

Testing confirms that the phone should have both 3G and Bluetooth support in North America. The phone as a whole is expected to concentrate on GPS features, and will have an optional windshield mount for use as an in-car navigator. Like its chief rival, the iPhone, the nuvifone also sports a 3.5-inch touchscreen. An official release date has so far been pegged only for the first quarter of 2009.
