The M10 from Garmin-Asus is the follow up from the A50 Android handset released by the company not too long ago. The interesting thing about this device is that is is only the second device available on the market now to feature Microsoft's latest Windows Mobile 6.5.3. The M10 is as up to date on all the latest software though it it may have a 600MHz Qualcomm MSM 7227 CPU which seems dated to most hardware enthusiasts.
But that shouldn't dampen your spirits too much when you realize that the m10 has 512MB of not only RAM but also ROM as well as a very nice 4GB of integrated storage. Another feature you can add to the list is a 3.5-inch WVGA touchscreen that will do a good job of displaying the built-in turn-by-turn navigation. Ingrained in everything the phone does is location awareness and navigation functions are said to be attached to the calendar, web browser, messaging and e-mail clients.
One of the selling points with the M10 is the click and go navigation. The advanced navigation features are equivalent to a high-end Garmin nuvi with such features as lane assist with junction view that guides drivers to the correct lane for an approaching turn or exit as well as realistically displaying road signs. The M10 also has a highway mode which informs the driver of the upcoming three street exits allowing the driver to plan ahead.
There has been no word on a price listing as of yet though the device is said to launch in the first half of 2010. I'm sure more details will surface at MWC next week.
