    Garmin's new phone

    Check it out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YtD4USzpoLI

    The video is kind of corny, but that looks like a pretty cool phone. That's coming from a guy who doesn't have a cell phone. It looks like it would be a perfect thing to take on a bike tour.

    I would be worried about battery life, its seems like as cell phones advance so does the need to have a car charger or something to get the thing juice throughout the day.

    Navigation on a phone is fine for emergencies but if you really want to see where you are going the screen would be too big to be a useful phone, IMO. Many cell phones have Nav functions anyway.

    FAIL
    The problem with the gene pool is that there is no lifeguard and the shallow end is much too large
