http://www.linuxinsider.com – After nearly two years of anticipation, Garmin and AT&T announced Tuesday that the long-awaited Garmin Nuvifone G60 will become available in the United States starting Oct. 4. Billed as "the navigation phone" for its integration of phone capabilities with GPS functionality, the Linux-based device will be sold online and in AT&T stores for $299, after a $100 mail-in rebate. A two-year service agreement with AT&T is required. The Nuvifone G60 offers the same core features as a high-end Garmin Nuvi device and comes preloaded with maps. (General)
