[ Music ] ^M00:00:07 >> Hi, I'm Bonnie Cha, Senior Editor at CNET.com, and we are here in Barcelona at Mobile World Congress taking a First Look at the Garmin-Asus Nuvifone A50. Now, this is actually an Android device. Garmin has been promising an Android device for a long time, and it is finally here, the A50. What's in 50, though, is Garmin has totally kind of redone the interface, and you can't even tell it's an Android phone. It does it have Android Market and Date Mail and GoogleTalk and all the Google services, but it's on Garmin's UI, so that's pretty interesting. Obviously, as a Garmin device, it's gonna have all your navigation abilities: maps, turn-by-turn, voice navigations, as well as connected services such as weather and traffic information. Hardware wise, it's really -- it feels like a really solid device, a big improvement over the J60, which we weren't huge fans of. It's nice and thin, and it also has a camera on the back here. As far as US availability, that's still TBD. They're not sure it's gonna come, but I hope so. I'd love to check it out. I'm Bonnie Cha, and this your First Look at the Garmin-Asus Nuvifone A50. ^M00:01:11 [ Music ]
