A few days after Amazon slipped, letting out the news regarding the released of the Garmin iQue 3200, it's official. The iQue 3200 is expected to be available in early August 2004 at a suggested retail price of $535.70. Retailers like Staples are expected to retail the units at $499 though. Amazon currently has the 3200 listed for $430.
“The iQue 3200 is designed for individuals who simply want a device that can manage their personal information and deliver personal navigation in a single unit,” said Gary Kelley, Garmin’s director of marketing. “Beyond organization and navigation, the iQue 3200 boasts a bright display, long battery life and Secure Digital Input/Output (SDIO) capabilities for added functionality at an attractive price.”
“We believe auto-navigation handhelds are one of the fastest growing segments in the industry today. Garmin is a leader in that market, and we're delighted that it's expanding its product line,” said Michael Mace, chief competitive officer at PalmSource Inc. “One of the strengths of Palm OS™ is that it's flexible enough to support a wide variety of devices. So, people can get the hardware they want, like a GPS unit, and still run the wide range of Palm OS software programs.”
