Garmin and Asus today announced that they will no longer co-develop their current line of navigation-focused smartphones. The companies will continue to sell and support the six devices that they have already developed, but will cease bringing more to market. Asus said that it will move forward in developing its own branded smartphones, and it may use some Garmin software for navigation. Garmin said it will target existing smartphone platforms by developing new, Garmin-branded navigation applications that it hopes to sell through various smartphone application stores.

The carpet doesn't match the...

oops, I meant to say the title doesn't match the article.

Garmin will no longer be jointly making smart phones with Asus, but Asus is going to continue making smartphones. The title leads you to believe they are both out of the smartphone business.

Garmin really should have stuck with software from the beginning. They do an incredible job with it.
