T-Mobile has officially confirmed the release date for the Garminfone — June 9th. As for availability, that was noted as being “select T-Mobile retail stores, select authorized dealers” and online at t-mobile.com.
Otherwise, the handset is going to be priced at $199.99, which comes after a $50 mail in rebate and along with a two year agreement. Of course, the pricing part we already knew.
Finally for those that really want a Gaminfone and cannot make a purchase, T-Mobile is running a contest and will be giving 5 away.
