Gigabyte WinMo 6 GPS Smartphone

I have a hard time wrapping my brain around why or how the Chinese are getting WinMo 6 smartphones before anyone else in the world. It’s not because I want a WinMo 6 phone or any WinMo phone for that matter, but how does that all work out? The T-Mo Dash is the first to receive the the new OS, but the phone isn’t that great, so I’m not heartbroken or anything. But I understand that there are people out there who actually like the WinMo OS, so I’m asking these questions for them.

Gigabyte Communications launched the GSmart i300 and it comes pre-installed with WinMo 6 Professional, Bluetooth 2.0, GSM/GPRS, WiFi (b/g), USB 2.0, 2-megapixel camera, and a built-in SiRF Star III GPS receiver. It also includes ‘GPS Tracking’, which tells you where all your photos were taken. ‘Location Message’ lets your Mom know where you are at all times via SMS. It gets better with the addition of ‘Pocket Remote’ which allows you to control your PC via ActiveSync. I can’t go on anymore. It’s too much for me to handle. Excuse me while I crawl under my desk and cry and curse my SK3. The i300 says hello to Taiwan and Thailand first with other countries to follow.
