Regarding Asustek and Garmin’s smartphones:
a source with direct knowledge of the project, speaking on condition his name not be used because he was not authorised to speak to the media, said the plan was to begin shipping the first LiMo phones in June
Although Reuters doesn’t mention the source by name, this is Reuters, so for better or worse you should probably trust them.
It has taken two announcements and a year and a half but it now appears we have a release time frame (other than “soon”) for the Nuvifone G60.
Update 8/7/09: TWICE is reporting that the Garmin-Asus Nuvifone G60 is “on track to launch in the U.S. in the fourth quarter”.
Update 10/3/09: AT&T and Garmin have announced in a press release that the Nuvifone G60 will be available for AT&T on October 4 for $299.
