THE JOINT VENTURE BETWEEN GPS maker Garmin and netbook specialist Asus has borne fruit in the shape of two new smartphones with very different pedigrees.

Following up on their promise to develop phones for every operating system, the companies have announced the arrival of the Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional-toting Nuvifone M20, and the Linux-flavoured Nuvifone G60.

The M20 has a 2.8-inch touch screen, 4 or 8GB of flash storage and a 3-megapixel video capable camera. Connectivity is covered by tri-band GSM,  well as 3G using 7.2Mbps HSDPA and Wi-fi 802.11b/g.

The G60 has a 272x480, 3.55-inch touch screen, 4GB of flash memory and all the other stuff is the same as the M20.

The G60 should make its way into the channel in the next few days but ETA for the M20 is unknown, as are pricing details. µ
