Gigabyte Android phone spotted, has no 3G support
The first GSmart-series cellphone from Gigabyte has been spotted, although unlike the range of Windows Mobile 6.5-powered handsets slated for an MWC debut, this one sports the Android operating system. Said to be using the 1.6 build of the software, the handset otherwise sports a 2.8-inch display with a 240x320 resolution and is powered by a 528MHz Qualcomm CPU. There is no 3G data network support, but a Wi-Fi radio is integrated.
Otherwise, users interface largely thanks to a trackball. GPS is built-in, along with a 2-megapixel camera, microSD memory card slot and the phone has 512MB of storage space. A 3.5mm headphone jack gives it ubiquitous access to audio.
The unnamed GSmart Android phone should ship either in February or March, priced at the equivalent of about $300. [via UnwiredView]
