You know, I hate to admit it, but the Garminfone was a flop. Not quite a Kin flop, but none-the-less, the device sold horribly. It’s a shame too, the Garminfone feels wonderful; Quite possibly one of the most solid devices on T-Mobile. A lot of people, myself included, just couldn’t get past that wonky UI.
In a last ditch effort to push a few more units out the door, T-Mobile is sending out an e-mail letting existing customers know they can buy the Garminfone now for $30 less than new customers. Of course, there are rules and stipulations: 2 year contract renewals, qualifying voice/data plan, and a $50 mail in rebate. While I don’t see a ton of people going out and grabbing a Garminfone just because the price was lowered $30, it’s nice to see an offer that rewards customers that already have active accounts with a carrier. For more information on how to grab the discount, check out the T-Mobile Scoop here. And hey, if you’re feeling link clicky (trust me, I don’t know either) check out John’s unboxing on the Garminfone here.
