Asustek is standing up to the press and refuting analyst claims that sales of the T-Mobile Garminfone are lagging. According to Asustek, the Garminfone is shipping as expected and consumer demand is positive. This statement seemingly contradicts a research note by analyst Yair Reiner who estimated that T-Mobile was selling a mere five handsets per store per week. Reiner crunched the numbers and calculated that T-Mobile has sold a meager 20,000 handsets since the Garminfone launched in early June. Despite its vehement objection to these numbers, Asustek did not provide sales figures; leaving us all wondering whether the Garminfone is indeed moving off the shelves as Asustek implies or is merely piling up in a T-Mobile warehouse waiting for a fire sale.
