Garmin-Asus is following up the just announced nuvifone A50 with another device, the Android-powered A10. The A10 is a joint venture between Garmin and Asustek (that we've heard about for a long time now) and differs from the A50 in that it is also optimized for pedestrian navigation. What that means exactly, we don't know. But obviously, navigation is going to be key for any 'garminfone' and for the A10, maps will be preloaded onto the device so you won't get lost if you suddenly lose your network connection.
The Garmin-Asus A10 comes with a 3.2-inch HVGA screen and will feature the usual slew of Android apps under an assumedly heavily skinned UI. It's expected to hit European and Asian markets in mid-2010. Which probably means, the T-Mobile nuvifone A50 will be the only 'garminfone' we'll get in the states. We're not sure if that's a bad thing. [garmin]
