Gigabyte have launched their MS800 (on the left) and MW700 in the UK today under the GSmart name. The handsets do look fairly similar, and indeed both are powered by the Marvell PXA270 520Mhz CPU with GPS, WiFi, 2 megapixel rear camera, FM radio and Bluetooth. However, the MW700 has GPRS / EDGE connectivity whilst the MS800 offers up faster 3.5G HSDPA.
The GSmart phones also come with the new “Smart Touch” technology – a new UI to bring finger-friendly navigation that is customizable. We saw a little of that earlier and we’ll be reviewing both these phones very soon indeed.
