PhoneScoop takes a ride with T-Mobile's new Garmin Asus Garminfone. It's an Android touchscreen phone with Garmin's navigation interface on top. Is it worth the trip? Check out our full review.

Is It Your Type?

If you're looking for a phone that excels in navigation and all location-based features, but can still handle all the best that Android can offer, T-Mobile's new Garminfone is definitely worth a closer look.
