[ Music ] ^M00:00:03 >> Bonnie Cha: Hi, I'm Bonnie Cha, senior editor at CNET.com, and today we have a very special unboxing of the Garmin nuvifone G60. This phone was announced almost two years ago, and it's just come into the market so pretty anxious to dig into this box. So here is the AT&T box. It is coming to AT&T on October�4th, for $299 with a twoyear contract. Typical AT&T box, so let's open it up here. Got the nuviphone here wrapped in plastic, we'll take off the screen. Come back to that in a second. See what else we got in the box. It looks like you also get a car cradle, which is great. You got a windshield mount here as well as a dashboard disc, so you can attach it to either. And this part, I believe, goes attaches to the nuviphone in back. Yep, and then just attach that here. There you go. See, we also have an AC adapter. Right there. The plug part. Zap into here. You got a USB cable, so you can plug it to your computer and also charge your device. So plug it in there. It looks like we got the battery here for the device. Let me put that in the back. All right. Let's let that power up. Other stuff in the box just looks like reference material here, typical quick guide, and some safety instructions and here you go. That's your contents of the Garmin nuviphone. It looks like it's powering up right here. Like I said, it will be available from AT&T, and it has North America maps preloaded on here as well voice guided directions. You can get some premium services as well for additional $5.99 per month which will give you fuel prices and real-time traffic information and movie information and things like that, but otherwise I'm looking forward to taking this device out on the road. I'm gonna take it down to San Diego for the CTIA 2009 fall show so see how it does as a GPS device as well as a smartphone. So check back soon for a full review as well as a full first look video of the Garmin nuviphone G60. I'm Bonnie Cha, and this has been your unboxing of the Garmin nuviphone G60. ^M00:02:39 [ Music ] ^M00:02:44
