GSmart announces Android device

Being the clever clogs that I am, anyone that caught the Mobiletech Addicts special podcast at the beginning of the year may recall that I predicted that we would see Gigabyte G-Smart release some Android powered devices this year. Well sooner than expected we’ve already seen an announcement from Gigabyte about exactly that! 🙂


The G-Smart Android Phone


The Gigabyte Android smartphone doesn’t have a name yet, but it’s part of the GSmart series – which, until now, included only Windows Mobile devices.

The new handset runs Android 1.6 (!), has a trackball and measures 103 x 54 x 13.4mm


G-Smart android phone specification:

  • GSM / GPRS / EDGE connectivity
  • 2.8 QVGA touchscreen display
  • Trackball
  • G-sensor (accelerometer)
  • Wi-Fi
  • GPS
  • Bluetooth 2.0
  • 3.5 mm audio jack
  • 2MP autofocus camera
  • Qualcomm ESM7225 528 MHz CPU
  • 256MB RAM, 512MB ROM
  • MicroSD card support
  • 1500 mAh battery


We’ve reviewed most of G-Smart’s handsets in the past so I hope to be able to get my hands on one of these for review soon too! 🙂


Shame it’s only Android 1.6 though!
