All in all, it's exceedingly simple to describe the nüvifone G60. If you're looking for a bona fide smartphone first and foremost that can do a bit of navigating every now and then, this phone isn't for you. The lack of an app market, the monthly cost attached to the lackluster apps that are included and the subpar web browser all contribute to making this phone less attractive than the iPhone or any of the existing Android phones in terms of actual functionality. Straight-up, you'll be entirely more productive with an Apple or Google-powered handset than the G60, and you'll have a lot more access to web-based applications and a web browser that's actually functional. It may hurt, but it's the truth.

(We at Wired resisted such sensationalism.) But now the GPS-enabled smartphone is finally for sale — and it's a Frankenstein, a monstrous creation that almost makes us want to swear off smartphones entirely.

There's little good to be said about this phone but we'll try to break it down before ranting about its copious flaws. It does fit neatly in hand and weighs about the same as the iPhone or the Palm Pre. It also has a 3.5-inch touchscreen too and there's no added bulk of a physical keyboard. The home screen is also fairly practical; it's divided into two fields with one area featuring icons for making calls and activating navigation, while the other has a sparse amount of apps like e-mail, a web browser and a music player. And then there's, uh ...
