Exploring the Slim and Svelte Gigabyte GSmart S1200

Monday, June 29th, 2009
With the amount of noise other smartphone manufacturers are creating, only a few mobile phones are worthy of a review. The Gigabyte GSmart S1200 is one of these new smartphones.
 
Built for extra storage
Gigabyte-GSmart-S1200One of the weak points of smartphones (including the iPhone and even the S1200) is the low internal storage. This is remedied in the S1200 with the help of a singular feature that solves all the storage problems: a MicroSD slot so you can expand the 256 mb they’ve included. Though 256 mb is enough for a few music and video files, it’s better to have a lot of storage to spare.
 
Executive smartphone
As a business phone, the Gigabyte GSmart is a sophisticated model, indeed. The S1200 is encased in a shiny silver frame, with a resistive front surface bound in subdued black. To add to the appearance is the decent computing speed of 512 megahertz, provided by a Qualcomm core processor.
 
But the S1200 can also be used for recreation; it has been installed with an autofocus camera, with a 3.0 megapixel CMOS sensor. For viewing of streaming videos and still shots, the S1200 uses a 3.1-inch display. Instead of directly pressing down on the resistive display, you simply have to ‘swipe’ to get to the part of the menu system that you need. A few swipes and you’re there.
 
Connectivity 
The Gigabyte S1200 is capable of supporting both HSPA connections and Wi-Fi, making the S1200 a great choice if you’re working in a wireless Internet environment. Like the Blackberry Storm, you can use your smartphone as a mini-notebook. Like the iPhone, you can view your websites in full size and you can stream videos, as well.
 

Instead of a Symbian OS, the Gigabyte GSmart S1200 runs with a Windows Mobile™ 6.1 and has been pre-installed with Gigabyte’s GSmart division’s patented user interface, SmartZone UI.

Gigabyte GSmart S1200: No More Plastic for Gigabyte

Friday, June 12th, 2009
Gigabyte GSmart S1200 is one of the thinnest smart phones around, featuring a large touchscreen display, high resolution and lots of pixels for even the most demanding multimedia requirements. We have the GSmart division to thank for the S1200, and we’re happy that they’ve let other reviewers get a hold of this model prior to its actual release.
 
S1200 Features
Gigabyte-GSmart-S1200The Gigabyte GSmart S1200 packs a decent SmartZone user interface, which features a streamlined menu system for easy access to the system tools, multimedia applications, phone software and other user features. As for usability, the S1200 has a glare-resistive touchscreen and a central key below the touchscreen (similar to the function of the Navigation Key of Nokia mobile phones).
 
The phone is also thin enough to impress even the most the fickle of mobile phone users who avoid clunky models. On its own, the S1200 is only 11.4 millimeters thick. The resistive touchscreen display is 3.1 inches. What did Gigabyte have in mind when they designed the S1200? Actually, Gigabyte is appealing to non-smart phone userss who think smart phones lack the finesse and style of designer phones like the LG Crystal.
 
Processing speed
As for other phone specifications, we learned that the S1200 has been loaded with a Qualcomm processing core operating at 528 megahertz. If we compare it to the likes of the Acer F1, the S1200 is a slower smartphone, indeed. We’re hoping that future releases pack at least 800 megahertz.
 
Camera, storage & connectivity

If you’re feeling snap-happy with every new smartphone, you can definitely point and shoot with S1200’s 3-megapixel camera and its MicroSD card slot for extra storage (available internal storage is only 256 megabytes). The camera has also been equipped with an auto-focus feature. And yes, you can connect to the Internet with Wi-Fi, with speeds that can reach up to 7.2 megabits per second.
