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.
