i300 goes Windows Mobile 6

Joining the likes of T-Mobile, the Chinese division of Giga-Byte has announced that local owners of the Gsmart i300 can now download a new OS, in this case Windows Mobile 6 Professional. The main difference will again be the improvement of e-mail, with full graphics and HTML formatting. The OS also has Windows Live chat and search functions directly integrated.

The phone itself has substantial specifications behind it; while notably lacking any cellular broadband, it does support 802.11b/g WiFi, as well as GPS tracking and Bluetooth 2.0. The processor is a 520MHz Intel chip, and memory totals to 64MB of RAM and 256MB of internal storage. Capacity is further expanded by miniSD cards. While Giga-Byte does have a US presence, given the company's Asian focus, it is unlikely that many local GSM carriers will pick up the device.
