Gigabyte GSmart Budget Android Phone Spotted

Gigabyte GSmart Budget Android Phone Spotted

They can't all be Nexus Ones and X10s. Perhaps Android's greatest selling point, for manufacturers, is the fact that it is free to use in their devices. That means a higher-quality OS with a much lower development and licensing cost, which allows manufacturers to make dirt-cheap phones for the masses.

The Gigabyte GSmart Android phone (AndroidSpin) is one of these populist smartphones. It sports a 528 MHz Qualcomm processor, a 2.8" touchscreen, and the Android 1.6 OS. It supports 2G EDGE, but not 3G. The GSmart does have WiFi, Bluetooth 2.0, and a 3.5 mm headphone jack.

All in all, there's nothing impressive about this smartphone...except the price. $300 unlocked means this thing should be free (or very cheap) with a contract. There's nothing in the GSmart that will please a true gadget-head, but it looks like a perfectly functional phone for the rest of the world.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
