Garmin's Asia Pacific marketing director Tony An added that:
Garmin will launch Nuvifone, its first GPS-enabled handset, in the Taiwan market in the second quarter of 2009, An noted. Garmin also plans to launch self-developed Android handsets in the second half of 2009, with production to be outsourced.It was to be expected, what with Garmin joining the Open Handset Alliance in early December. It's tough to tell the way that paragraph is written, but to me it sounds like the reference to the Taiwan market only applies to Nuvifone. The Android phone is probably not going to launch in Taiwan, I would think.
With all the Android phone announcements and rumors of late, 2009 is shaping up to be the year of Android.
