Gadling Reviews the Garminfone

Garminfone No sooner do I post a roundup of GPS reviews than I discover that Gadling has reviewed the Garmin-Asus Garminfone, a smartphone available from T-Mobile in the U.S. next month tomorrow. Truth be told, I have a bone to pick with the review: if this, as the reviewer, Scott Carmichael says, is “the best GPS unit I have ever tested,” connected or otherwise — despite the fact that, as he notes, the Garminfone’s speaker is weak (a common problem with smartphones versus dedicated navigators; see previous entry), there were GPS reception issues and the price is “a little on the high side” — then I suspect he needs to test a few more GPS units.
