Gigabyte GSmart M1220 runs 6.5


This one went under the radar at MWC 2009, but kudos to Hungarian site MobileArena for spotting it. It looks like the Gigabyte M1220 may turn out to be the second thinnest Windows Mobile device ever…beaten only by the original Motorola Q (by a mere .1 mm). The Windows Mobile 6.5-based device is running with a 528MHz CPU with 256MB ROM and 128MB RAM, plus has a full QWERTY on the front. It’s sporting a unique Flash-based user interface, but sadly does so with a 2.4" QVGA touchscreen display. Beyond that, it includes the usual goods like WiFi, HSDPA/HSUPA, aGPS, and dual cameras. It’s expected to hit Europe around September of 2009. For even more specs, check out

T-Mobile G1 unboxing

It’s been some months since we first looked at the T-Mobile G1 (HTC Dream). We were lucky enough to be able to attend the G1 launch event and to get some hands-on time with the first Android phone.

I finally managed to get hold of a retail G1 handset which, following the unboxing video below, Steve will be reviewing for us. Steve and I are fairly firm Windows Mobile fans so we’ll be making comparisons between Android and WM.


The T-Mobile G1


I’ve only used the G1 for a short period but I have to say that I am fairly impressed. The clarity of the screen is good and the touchscreen is really sensitive and responsive which means that you can navigate and use the handset without needing a stylus. The menus are fairly logical and easy to find your way around. The web browser is also rather good and does a decent job of rendering webpages, almost as well as a desktop computer albeit on a smaller scale.

Have a look at our video and pop back soon to see the full review.
