Garmin Further Delays Nuvifone

Amy Gilroy, reporting for Twice:

Garmin will again delay the launch of its nuvifone GPS/smartphones to the second half of the year, it said during a conference call with analysts May 6.

This is the problem with vaporware pre-announcements. If the product is ready, you can just announce it, sans pre- prefix. If the product is not yet ready, it’s not possible to know exactly how long it’s going to take until it will be.
