    Apparently, with the termination of the Garmin-Asus partnership, there will be no further updates to the firmware of all Garmin-Asus phones (A10, A50, etc).
    In short, we're on our own.
    Not likely to even get Froyo, let alone Gingerbread, mate.
    The last update issued was Eclair.

    Sigh. I tell you what. This makes me reluctant to by a brand like this going forward. (Steven shakes his head).

    That's probably a thought shared by many of us Garmin-Asus users.
    However, the benefits of the integrated Garmin GPS would offset much of such negatives for me (and i suspect many others, too).
    We live in hope that some good soul might offer us "safe" upgrades in time to come. Meanwhile, Eclair is already much better than Donut.
    Cheers
