Garmin-Asus launches M10, India's first WinMo 6.5.3 handset

30 Mar

Garmin and Asus’ teamwork gave us the two phones- the M20 and the G60 in the past.  And now the third phone by this successful partnership is finally in India, a dedicated navigation handheld – the M10. The coolest thing about this one is that, it has got pre-embedded maps of 62 major Indian cities (thanks to Navteq) offering integrated turn-by-turn navigation, lane assistance with junction view and text to speech (reads out road names). There is also a Ciao feature in the handset that will let you know on which road is your friend travelling. Just to sum it up, it’s more like an inclusion of the best GPS device by Garmin into this phone.

 

On the specs front, it is based on the latest updated version WinMo 6.5.3, sports a 3.5 inch display, a 600 MHz processor by Qualcomm, Wi-Fi, a 5.0 MP camera, VGA video recording, 4 GB of onboard storage and talktime of 8 hours.
 
Wondering how much you would have to shell out on this one? We’ll say, take a sigh of relief as this one is available in the market for just Rs 19,990.

We have had a chance to take the M10 for a spin and will be posting our first impressions in the coming days.
