T-Mobile Garminfone due June for $200

If you’re not taken with the LG Ally on Verizon, how about a different Android smartphone this month?  T-Mobile have announced pricing and (rough) availability for the Garminfone, the touchscreen GPS-centric handset unveiled late last month.  The handset will drop in June, priced at $199.99 with a new, two-year agreement.

So far there’s no preorder page, though you can sign up for more information when T-Mobile have it.  The Garminfone is the latest collaborative effort of Garmin and ASUS, and packs a 3.5-inch touchscreen, 3-megapixel camera, GPS (obviously!) and the company’s own custom UI, intended to make in-car use more straightforward.

That means there’s real-time weather and traffic updates, a huge Points of Interest database and automatic re-routing.  Whether that’s worth $200 remains to be seen.
