The much-awaited Garmin Nuviphone G60 – a combination Garmin GPS Nuvi + cell phone with touchscreen – is going on sale this Monday (October 4th). The combination Nuvi GPS cell phone has been in the buzz stages for nearly two years. Unlike the almost after-thought GPS features of some smart cell phones, or even the somewhat more robust GPS features of some contemporary smartphones, the Garmin Nuvi phone is truly a full-featured Nuvi GPS and a full-featured touch screen cellphone.

Included in the Garmin Nuviphone G60 are such Garmin Nuvi GPS standard features as Garmin’s “Where the bleep am I?” service (ok, it’s really called “Where am I?” service, but we know what they meant), which allows you to quickly determine not only where you are, but an address closeby, along with the nearest emergency services.
The phone has 3G capabilities, a real HTML browser, a 3 megapixel camera, and onboard wifi.
Coolest of all, the OS is based on Linux.
The only downside is that it’s being offered through AT&T, but the silver lining to that cloud is the connectivity to their more than 20,000 hot spots.
The Garmin Nuviphone retails for $399 but there is a $100 mail-in rebate. And, of course, you have to sign AT&T’s two-year contract.
