AT&T and Garmin present the nuviphone

The Garmin nuvi is a very popular GPS car navigation system. Now, we see that AT&T will have the Garmin nuviphone. You'll get a GPS navigation system running the Garmin system and you'll get a phone. What a great combination!

I already have a TomTomPhone on my smartphone with my combination of TomTom navigation software on a Windows Mobile smartphone. You can also load Garming GPS navigation software on a Windows Mobile smartphone (among other types of smartphones)

The nuvifone G60 will be available in AT&T stores or at www.wireless.att.com on October 4 for $299 with a two year service agreement after $100 mail-in-rebate. Nuvifone Premium Connected Services which includes traffic updates, white pages, weather, movie, local events and fuel price content are available for $5.99/month after a 30-day trial.

So what's so exciting about the nuviphone? It's not exciting for medical professionals who want to run medical software. I doubt that the Garmin operating system will run many medical apps.
