T-Mobile USA Announces Upcoming Availability of Garminfone

T-Mobile USA, Inc. today announced the upcoming, exclusive availability
of the new Garminfone™, the first Android™-powered smartphone
fully-integrated with Garmin’s premium navigation experience.
Anticipated to be available later this spring, Garminfone is a sleek,
full-touch 3G smartphone with a large 3.5-inch screen integrated with
Garmin’s robust navigation experience for fast and reliable navigation
from the middle of town to the middle of nowhere — and back.

“The Garminfone brings together two increasingly popular devices in one
state-of-the-art package, delivering a rich, unique experience that no
other smartphone or standalone navigation device can offer,” said George
Harrison, vice president, marketing product innovation, T-Mobile USA.
“Busy people balancing personal and professional lives are increasingly
seeking smartphones, and the deep integration of Garmin navigation into
the smartphone features of this device helps them do more with one
device to more simply navigate their busy lives.”

Cliff Pemble, president and COO, Garmin International said, “As the
North American leader in Personal Navigation Devices, Garmin sought to
partner with the leading carrier of Android smartphones, T-Mobile USA,
to bring our first Android device to market. Garmin’s advanced,
user-friendly navigation technology is used by millions of people every
day, and the combination of Garmin’s rich navigation services on the
Android platform simply makes Garminfone a must-have device for
families, individuals, travelers, commuters, and professionals alike.”

Garminfone features Garmin’s industry-leading personal navigation
experience integrated throughout the device including the following:

  • Integrated Navigation + Smartphone Experience: Garminfone delivers
    navigation capabilities beyond what other smartphones and standalone
    navigation devices provide. Customers can navigate to an address
    simply by clicking on it from a text message or e-mail, contact,
    calendar appointment, or web page. Garminfone can even remember where
    you are parked and navigate you back to your car. The 3-megapixel
    camera with autofocus automatically geotags images so you can navigate
    back to where your family vacation photos were taken, e-mail
    geo-tagged images to friends and family members, or post geo-tagged
    pictures on the Web for others to enjoy. Helpful Garmin travel
    applications such as dynamic, real-time traffic; weather local events;
    movie listings; and gas prices are pre-installed and easy to access
    and use.
  • Garmin Navigation: Driving, walking and public transportation
    navigation with voice and on-screen directions and automatic
    re-routing are deeply integrated into the smartphone features of
    Garminfone to simplify navigating your daily life. On-board North
    American maps offer fast and reliable directions — whether in or out
    of cell phone coverage — and multiple overlapping positioning
    technologies ensure Garminfone customers have one of the best location
    and navigation experiences a smartphone can offer. In addition,
    Garminfone utilizes text-to-speech technology to speak street names,
    and the screen automatically switches between day and night modes for
    easier viewing while driving.
  • Garmin Voice Studio: Garminfone is the first to feature Garmin Voice
    Studio, an Android application, which allows customers to record and
    share custom voice directions from family and friends.

Garminfone also includes a convenient charging window and dashboard
mount, enabling customers to easily navigate and charge the phone’s
battery simultaneously.

In addition to the comprehensive navigational features, the Garminfone
is built on the Android operating system offering a rich mobile Web
experience with integrated Google™ mobile services including Google
Search by voice, Google Maps™, YouTube® and access to Android Market,
where customers can find thousands of applications to further enhance
their travel experience and their daily lives. The mobile Web browser
experience includes enhanced functions including pinch and zoom
capability and embedded location awareness which links information found
on the Web to navigation and mapping functions, allowing users to
navigate directly to a location from a Web page.

The powerful mobile data experience Garminfone delivers is supported by
fast data speeds via Wi-Fi and T-Mobile’s nationwide 3G network*.
Garminfone also offers essential smartphone features such as easy access
to personal and work e-mail, including support for Microsoft® Exchange
e-mail, contacts and calendar; social networking; instant messaging; an
advanced music player; and a 3-megapixel autofocus camera.


Garminfone is expected to be available in the U.S. exclusively to
T-Mobile customers later this spring. For more information, please visit http://www.garminfone.t-mobile.com.
