Garmin-Asus Unveils A10 Smartphone

Garmin-Asus has launched the Garmin-Asus A10 in the Indian market. The A10 is powered by the Android 2.1 OS, using a 3.2-inch capacitive screen capable of multi-touch. Other features are pretty much standard smartphone fare with 5 megapixel auto-focus camera, 4GB storage in addition to 512MB of RAM and 512MB of ROM for storing often accessed files. A 1500mAh battery is claimed to deliver a long battery life.

It features Garmin\'s proprietary car and pedestrian navigation technology, making it easy to navigate the city and utilize the built-in Point of Interest (POI) database to scope out movie show times, public transport information, shops and establishments, in addition to real-time information on weather, gas prices, and parking lot availability among other things. These services are integrated into A10\'s customised \"click and go\" function.

The navigation aspect is foolproof because the smartphone comes preinstalled with requisite maps, so users don\'t have to put up with the time and money spend downloading the same from third-party sources. Although, with the municipal corporations reformatting our topography with an alarming regularity, one can only hope the maps are up to date. The phone will retail in major metros at Rs 18,990.
