To make mobile devices together
Somewhat unexpected Garmin and Asus has created a joint business unit for what the two companies call location-centric mobile phones and the first product to come out of the joint venture is the nüvifone G60, which until now has been simply known as the nüvifone.
However, as unexpected as this new company and product co-branding might be, it makes a lot of sense, as Asus was already making the nüvifone for Garmin and the two companies have different expertise which this way should be able to be better utilized.
At the moment the only device listed on the company website is the nüvifone G60, but Garmin-Asus is expected to announce a second device at the Mobile World Congress later this month and more devices are also expected later this year.
