First live photos of Gigabyte's Android phone
Two weeks ago we first heard reports that Gigabyte was going to be introducing their first Android based smartphone this year, though the details were a bit sketchy. Then a few days later more details about the device came out, including a few computer renderings. Now the folks at Mobile Review have what appears to be the first live images of the Gigabyte device with some further specs. It has the typical GSmart appearence, and features a 2.8" QVGA display, GSM 900/1800 (EDGE), 528MHz Qualcomm processor, 192MB RAM/512MB ROM, microSDHC memory card slot, 2MP autofocus camera, 3.5mm headset jack, 1200mAh battery, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS. Currently it is expected to be running Android 1.6 OS and to ship in February or March for $300 (9,000 rubles).

Meh. Kinda interesting. Would make a good android phone with training wheels for an android noobie. Otherwise I'm already burnt out on my G1 and it has a 3.2" screen. Although at $300 pre subsidy it sounds like a good backup device.
