Garmin-Asus today announced A50 Android phone in Canada. Garmin-Asus A50 will be available in Canada through Videotron.
Smartphone comes with full-touch 3G smartphone with a large 3.5-inch screen, Android 1.6 with Breeze UI, Qualcomm 7227 ARM 11, 600MHz processor, 4GB Flash + 256 MB SDRAM + 256 MB ROM and 3 Mega-Pixel, Auto Focus camera.
Garmin navigation is included and preloaded on the A50. Because maps are installed on the device, customers will not have to wait for third-party maps to download from a server, nor will they lose their turn-by-turn, voice-prompted navigation if they are out of cell phone coverage. The A50 also has many of the same features as a high-end Garmin nüvi® navigation device, and includes free lifetime map updates, traffic alerts (free for 3 years for Videotron customers)and a custom Garmin car mount and vehicle power cable.
