Written by Slobodan Simic

The first and last is Nüvifone G60

According to a report over at CNET Asia, Garmin-Asus will abandon the current Linux platform and focus its attention on Windows Mobile and Google Android OS for future devices. Nüvifone G60 will be the first and the only device based on that particular Linux platform.

Back at CeBIT we had a chance to fiddle with one of those and it looked quite fast and decent, but it looks like that it just takes too much time and resources to develop and tweak such a platform. The first Google Android device from Garmin-Asus cooperation might show its face by the end of this year, which is earlier than the Q1 2010, which was rumored date a while back.

The report also notes that both G60 and Windows Mobile based M20 devices might come as early as August for some markets, while other will get it in 2H of 2009.
