Although Garmin unveiled this device in January, this is the first time the company has said what it will cost.
In addition to this pricing information, it was also mentioned that the nuvifone might come with a $19.99 a month unlimited data option as a part of the plan.
An Overview of the nuvifone
The nuvifone will be Garmin 's first GSM featurephone designed to take advantage of its GPS knowledge. It will feature a large touchscreen, GPS receiver, and built-in maps.
It will be the replacement for this company's line of GPS-enabled Palm OS and Pocket PC handhelds. Because it will offer a constant 3G connection to the Internet, this device will offer features not available in this company's earlier models, such as real-time traffic and fuel prices.
This will be more than just a navigation device. It will have a web browser, messaging application, multimedia options, and a camera.
Garmin expected to release the nuvifone in the third quarter of this year.
