After months of waiting on Garmin's Android based smart phone, it seems that it is really close to being in our sweaty Android loving hands. The guys over at MobileBurn was lucky enough to get their hands on the device and it looks quite impressive.

Anyone notice the UI? Yes it's another variation of Android. This one is called the Breeze UI, it's almost identical to Garmin's non-Android phone's that are currently on AT&T's network. I am anxious to see how the navigation will be on this device. Will it be free or paid? How will it stack up up against Google's free service? While I ponder this, have a look at the specs:
