Garmin Nuvifone

There isn't much to say about our hands-on time with the Garmin Nuvifone, since the prototype we saw wouldn't even power up. The phone is very thin, especially with other portable navigation devices in mind. It's also nice and sleek, a simple black obelisk, though we're more interested in the stylish UI we've seen in press photos than in the outer shell. For the inner workings, though, we'll have to take Garmin's word for it. The company admits that there is still a ways to go, but seems confident in a late 2008 launch. No carrier or retail plans have been finalized, but reps tell us to expect a GPS experience that far exceeds what we've seen so far on mobile phones. Release: March 2009.

Pros: Cool look, thin device. Much smaller than the PNDs it might replace.

Cons: Um, could somebody please get us a working model? This one doesn't turn on.
