Garmin Linux Phones: One and Done

Remember the promise of the new Garmin phones? (Feb coverage in APB.) Remember how Garmin was to use Linux and even open sourced the OS for its regular nuvis (2008 coverage)?

Well, the Linux love affair is over at least on the phones, per C|net.

When asked about the potential of Garmin-Asus’ current Linux platform for future devices, [regional director for Southeast Asia sales, Hektor] Tung revealed that this will be used only in the G60. Future smartphones will either come with Windows Mobile like the M20 or be based on the Google Android operating system.
