Gigabyte g-Smart WM5 smartphone

Gigabyte g-SmartChinese outfit Gigabyte have released their g-Smart Windows Mobile 5 smartphone. The device boasts all the usual Windows smartphone features but throws TV and radio reception into the mix. Only regular analog broadcasts, mind you - if you're in Europe and thinking of picking up digital DVB TV or DAB radio then think again. The CPU is a 416MHz Intel PXA272 with 64MB each of ROM and RAM and there is a mini SD slot. The phone also features a 2.4" 262k colour 320x240 LCD screen and a 2.1 megapixel camera.

True to its origins there is also a 100,000 word English-Chinese dictionary.
