Gigabyte released the Windows Mobile 5.0 based GSmart i120 phone. This phone is feature-packed, it features 802.11b/g Wi-Fi and GRPS Internet access but one of its most amazing features is Mobile TV. The GSmart i120 supports NTSC, PAL and SECAM. Users can also record TV and store it on the memory card. I'm not sure if this TV feature will be quite useful as the display is only 2.4-inch.

In addition to communication and mobile entertainment values, GSmart i120 offers two intelligent, personalized built-in features: Wise Talk and Smart Input. GSmart i120 Wise Talk, an exclusive feature, offering users the freedom to create a virtual background scenario upon answering the phone call. GSmart i120 Wise Talk, which can simulate the background noise, may camouflage the user’s actual location by providing a selection of pre-set special background effects. For instance, GSmart i120 Wise Talk may create a virtual scenario with sounds at a concert, in a meeting room, or at an airport.

On the other hand, GSmart i120 Smart Input helps users to make a wish on smart messaging by offering quick, predictive character input on the phone. For example, users may use Smart Input to write “ai”, then there will be word options automatically suggested, such as “air”, “airport”, “airplane”, and …etc. With Smart Input, users may take advantage of a smart lifestyle.

The GSMart i120 measures 106.6 × 53.2 × 19.8mm and weighs 130g. It uses the Intel PXA272 416MHz processor and has 256MB NOR and 64MB SDRAM memory.

It's li-ion battery offers a talk time of up to 3.5 hours and a standby time of 125 hours. Other features include: 2.1 megapixel digital camera with video recording, support for miniSD memory cads, FM radio and Bluetooth.
