    Slow Garminfone Sales Prompt T-Mobile To Lower Price From $199.99 To $129.99

    T-Mobile has been forced to lower the price of the Garminfone as a result of very weak demand - analyst estimates peg the number sold around 20,000. The phone was priced at $199.99, a price most reviewers agreed was too high for a phone with relatively weak specs:

    • 600 Mhz processor
    • 3.5” screen
    • 3 MP camera
    • 2GB microSD card
    • Android 1.6 with no word on an upgrade
    • Focus on navigation capabilities

    Those in the market for an Android device were able to either get a more powerful phone for the same price, or an equally capable one for substantially less.

Citing “multiple sources”, TmoNews is reporting that the Samsung Vibrant (T-Mobile’s version of the Samsung Galaxy S) is due to launch July 15, one week earlier than was previously reported. It seems pretty clear that T-Mobile is trying to take away the thunder of another Android superphone launching on July 15 – but T-Mobile will need to build up a lot of hype to take down the newest member of Verizon’s Droid army.
