According to Bensen Lin, vice president and general manager of Garmin-Asus, his company will launch its Android-based Nuvifone A10 smartphone in Taiwan on September 10. Those who want to get a jump on other buyers can put in their pre-order now.
Android's Froyo build (Android 2.2) isn't in the cards for the Nuvifone A10, at least not initially, and will instead ship with Android 2.1. It will also come with a 3.2-inch HVGA touchscreen display, 512MB of RAM, a 5MP camera, Qualcomm 7227 processor clocked at 600MHz, Bluetooth/Wi-Fi, and other odds and ends. As with previous Garmin-Asus phones, the A10 will come heavily promoted for its built-in GPS functionality.
No word yet on when this one will ship stateside.
