Hi guys...I just bought this phone. Anyone has idea how to download games and applications? Also is it possible for install fm in it?
Hi-Tek, 12 Mar 2009It looks good but falls short on features for me...no video recording, no flash for the camera... moreThis is gps centric phone. Nowadays there are so many types of functions, one has to choose what is most important to u .If LBS and GPS is not so important to u, then u shldn't buy this phone. But for me, I am waiting to buy a gps unit and this fits in nicely without having another device to keep/handle. And it so convenient to take it out of the car (theft),use it as a phone and plug it in when u are back in the car.
If music,radio,pictures etc is important , then choose other phones. There are so many to choose from.If budget is not a constraint go for the IPhone3gs but unfortunately for most of us, it is.
If the nuvifone can be a bit cheaper , it would be fantastic.
as g60 is a gps oriented smartphone, i find that opening an application is really smooth. changing of landscape to portrait mode is really smooth if we compare with those pda phones running on wm and android. sms is still threaded and u can even change the whole operating system to chinese since it is linux based. for those who used wm before, you are able to transfer your contacts and calendars info, you can sync the phone to Outlook using the nuviphone sync agent (cd provided in the package).
when it will be launch if its a linux can it be possiable to sync with windows xp,only the one feature is less no video player,can its possiable to use third praty video player.
Finally... from the Garmin-Asus website... "Garmin-Asus nüvifone G60 will go on sale in Taiwan on July 27"
In regards to no MP4 support. The phone is Linux based and if it is open then getting a compatible app fro MP4 will be as easy as finding a corrupt politician.
I currently have an Xperia X1 and that will be replaced with this once the contract has run out.
when i first saw this... it juz looked like a garmin:)
but its diff!
that's good enough for me!
a phone and garmin=2in1:)
knot wait to get my hands on this!:)
Dear Hi-Tek .... this gadget wasn't built for features. It was built for GPS functions. As the article in the NEWS says, THE FIRST GPS ORIENTED SMARTPHONE ...... And probablly the specifications aren't updated 100% ...
mart, 02 Mar 2009os linux make it secure,compare with wm and symbians os.@Mike
Linux does bring in a little complexities... But none that cannot be solved by a little google...
