Written by test

From Gigabyte's mobile phone division

Gigabyte's GSmart mobile phone division has been making Windows Mobile-based devices for quite some time now, but it is only fairly recently the company has started to push its handsets. The company is doing quite well in Russia and from our understanding, it's the third biggest smartphone brand in this market.

GSmart has two quite interesting devices coming later this year, the MS820 and the MW720; in essence these are both the same device with the MS820 touting 3G and HSDPA whereas the MW720 will be a cheaper model with GPRS and EDGE. Both models work on the GSM 850, 900, 1,800 and 1,900MHz band and 2,100MHz for WCDMA on the MS820.

The rest of the specifications are quite similar, with both models featuring a flush fitting 2.8-in 480x640 resolution touch screen which can display up to 262,000 colors. They're both powered by a Marvell PXA 270 processor clocked at 520MHz and have 256MB of ROM and 128MB of RAM.

Other interesting features include a SiRF Star III GPS reciever, a rear-mounted 5Mpixel camera with auto focus, the MS820 also has a front mounted camera for video calls, 802.11b/g WiFi, Bluetooth 2.0 , a microSD card for memory expansion and a mini USB 2.0 interface. GSmart has also added something called a G-Sensor, which we guess is a motion sensor.

Size-wise, both models measure 116x59x14.1mm (HxWxD) and they're, of course, running Windows Mobile 6 Professional. We'd expect to see actual units at Computex in June. These two models, as well as the just launched MS800 and MW700, will make their way to Europe.
