A50 Optus, $571 optus.com.au
★★★★ THIS phone wants to tell you where to go. The Garmin-ASUS Nuvifone A50 is a Google Android phone with a focus on navigation that is evident from its first screen: a screen that lets you find a route, look at a map or make a call. The A50 offers Australian maps from Navteq, a quick GPS sensor and street directions. Those who want more can use its Android apps, 3-megapixel camera or MP3 player, though the phone is slower than some thanks to a 600MHz processor.
