Gigabyte entered the Taiwanese cell phone market with the Gigabyte g-X5 handset. This slider phone supports GSM 900/1800/1900MHz bands and features a 2.6 million color TFT display and a megapixel digital camera.
One of the unique features of this handset is tri-axis motion sensing, allowing users to play games by moving the device in the air. But Gigabyte claims the most interesting feature of the g-X5 is Points of Interest (POI). This technology will incorporate e-maps with places of interests, restaurants and tour routes recommended by the Walker magazine.
The Gigabyte g-X5 is solely available in Taiwan for a retail price between NTD13,000 and NTD14,000 (approx. $410 to $450).
