Pictures of Garmin phone released

Just under a year ago Garmin announced they were going to release their first try in the mobile phone market with the nuvifone, they said that the device will have a touch screen, Internet browsing and a personal navigator which is what Garmin is mainly known for.

Cliff Pemble the COO of Garmin said "The nüvifone is an all-in-one device offering unmatched integration of utility and function in a single mobile device," which could be true but if you look at the iphone it already offers that but he went on to say "This is the breakthrough product that cell phone and GPS users around the world have been longing for — a single device that does it all.".

So nearly a year later the first images from the device surface and the menus look bright but it still doesn't really grab me as a revolutionary stand out product in the mobile phone market. You can see it demonstrated in the advert below and also on display at CES which Neowin are covering so watch this space for coverage on that!

So what are your opinions on this device?, is it something we have seen already or could be a fresh new device to liven up the mobile market?
