Garmin-Asustek to show off Android smart phones

The alliance between Garmin and Asustek will be showing off the fruit of its labours at the  Mobile World Congress (MWC) trade fair.

Benson Lin, president of Asustek’s handheld device business unit said that the first thing made will be an Android-powered smartphone, followed by four or five new Windows Mobile or Android phones in 2010.

The products are expected to sell a million units, Lin added.

AndroidIn addition to the Android handset, Asustek will also show off its new Windows Mobile 6.5.3-based smartphone, the M10. The M10 is based on a Qualcomm 7224 600MHz processor and equipped with a 3.5-inch WVGA resistive touch panel and a 5-megapixel camera plus GPS functionality.

The M10 will hit the shops in early February with a suggested retail price of $434.4.

The glorious alliance is flat out designing shiny objects for the Chinese market.  It plans its first TD-SCDMA handset for the China market by the end of the year.
