Garmin and Asus today announced a strategic alliance that will lead to a portfolio of GPS-enabled devices under the Garmin-Asus brand. The first product of the alliance will be the nuvifone G60, which is the same nuvifone that Garmin showcased last year. The device will be showcased at MWC in Barcelona later this month.

According to the press release, the two companies are working on a complete portfolio of devices in the nuvifone series. It was a well-known fact that Garmin was working with Asus for its original nuvifone that it had showcased in February last year. however, the product witnessed several delays and has not hit shelves yet. The company now expects the device to hit markets in the first half of this year.

Apart from Locastion Based Services, the nuvifone will also feature Ciao! which will be a location based social networking application. We are looking forward to catching up with the nuvifone in Barcelona!
