So there you have it, the Gigabyte GSmart t600, the first mobile phone with three digital TV tuners built-in. It's not the best Windows Mobile device we've seen, but it does have its charms. It might not be the prettiest of phones either, but it's slightly smaller than most other Windows Mobile devices which sport a touch screen.
It has a wide range of applications as standard and it's got quite good specifications, but our review sample suffered from a few niggles which need to be ironed out before retail units are being shipped. Let's hope that Gigabyte changes the stylus around slightly and adds a point to it.
It's also not going to be cheap, the expected retail price here in Taiwan without any subsidy from the network carrier is expected to be around $20,000 NT (or $688 AUD). However this might be different depending on the market where you purchase it and if any network providers offer it at a subsidised price. Had it been a 3G handset it would have most likely had more interest from the various network providers; but as it stands, this handset seems to have ended up in a niche market.
Overall, the Gigabyte GSmart t600 isn't a bad device, it's just not competitive enough with other Windows Mobile devices out there, TV tuner or not. However, it shows the potential Gigabyte has and we'd expect to see it improve upon its phones as new models arrive.
