NICE DEVICE-NOT SO SMART PHONE

 

Oct 8, 2009 by MANIAC

The user interface on this device works well... Really well. The home screen is layed out well with 3 huge icons center stage and a swift moving tool bar on the side to access menu items. More about the tool bar in a moment.

The operating system is fast compared to WinMo.

Great navigation features... easy to access... and quick to come up. The pedestrian mode is awesome with a compass that is easily accessed and read.

Nice Screen! Matte finished like a true navigation device. I don't feel the need for a screen protector like I did with every other touchscreen I have used.

Simple stuff that makes SO much sense... Like the signal strength indicator... with 4 or 5 bars the indicator is green... with 2 or 3 it is yellow... with 1 it is red... and with no signal at all a big red X is placed through the tower!

Not so smart phone though... can not customize home screen. The tool bar with shortcut icons can not be customized... So I cant get my calculator up there (which is buried in the menu pretty good) and I can not get rid of "Ciao"...

NO MMS... Pretty sad really... Did Garmin Asus learn nothing from iPHONE? Or is this imposed by AT&T?

Does not have dedicated Send/End keys and no proximity sensor either... so when you are done with a call you need to push the top On/Off/Suspend button to wake up the screen to access the "end call" icon. Kind of weak...

No flash... Not a real bummer but for the money it cost a flash would be nice.

To pay AT&T $30 additional for a SmartPhone service is questionable with this device. It really has no applications to get for it... The e-mail is not push and the browser does something stupid... When launched it goes back to the last page visited! Not the Home Page...

All in all I really do like the device for my particular use... but if you are looking for a Smart Phone stick with BB, WinMo, Symbian, or that other device...

Definitely worth a look and if the store has a working demo to play with its all good.

Just a nice voice phone with gps

 

Oct 26, 2009 by meatpotatoes

The Garmin is alright. I like the voice features and the Gps. Getting around the device is a chore cause you have to click the back button over over over over again, it has no HOME button, geez. I like the way it feels and the weight is perfect. One thing that bothered me as a smart phone you would think you could download apps; i.e. facebook, twitter, pandora, NOT! Aint happeing buddy! So if you want a good talk text device with good gps, its all good. Oops, before I forget, the device has a full html browser with flash, you can see the sites pretty darn good. Other than that, AT&T needs to make this NOT a smart phone, just another "fancy" touchscreen device.
