Garmin Garminfone (T-Mobile) - $199, Available Now

Smartphone aficionados may dismiss the reinvented Garminfone as a mid-range smartphone running an outdated version of Android (1.6). But for those wanting a high-end personal navigation device and a smartphone in the same package, Garminfone actually delivers. Sleeker and smoother than the awful first round of Garmin nav/phones, this Garminfone offers a pretty decent Android experience that's dressed up with a very user-friendly custom UI and pinch-to-zoom Web browsing. Add to that Garmin's high-end navigation apps and GPS tracking that easily outperformed "regular" smartphones in my testing, and you've got a nice PND/smartphone hybrid. The device comes packaged with a full car kit, including mount and charger, to sweeten the deal.
