Garmin Nuvifone gets FCC greenlight, reminding everyone that it still exists

Oh, Garmen Nuvifone; how relevant you would have been when you were announced back in January. A handful of bug-filled demonstrations at trade shows and nearly a full year later, we’ve sort of stopped caring.

Fortunately, the FCC still cares. Sure, it’s their job to care – but as long as someone’s listening, why sweat the technicalities? They’ve now given the handset (apparently known around the development labs as the ASUS “Calf”) the run through and a subsequent thumbs up, clearing it for take off. If Garmin does ever get around to releasing this thing, at least they’ve got that hurdle out of the way.
