Giga-Byte has announced a newly developed UI software for its GSmart Windows Mobile smartphones which is called "Smart Touch". This new interface that is intuitive, informative and flexible, offers users a more user friendly interface.
GSmart has established a sound position in the market when its famous world's first (and still the only one) DVB-T Windows Mobile smartphone (the GSmart t600) were introduced to the public, and after since, GSmart has been harvesting the market productively and actively, it has introduced several new models, and each with unique features.

Growing with the PDA phones and smartphone market, GSmart has recently developed a new UI - Smart Touch, which is a finger friendly interface that works like iPhone, but it's intuitive, informative and flexible features, makes GSmart phone much more personal than iPhone, it is a more integrated version with useful and interesting features.

Smart Touch is an interface that users can customize by adding in 16 most frequently used apps as shortcuts on standby screen, with the shortcuts list displaying at the bottom of the screen, users are able to find the shortcuts they want to activate by swiping across the screen and launch the program simply by tapping on the icon!

Furthermore, Smart Touch has iconized the shortcut list; users can add the shortcut from the list by dragging the shortcut icon to the activate icon, and vice versa: - the shortcut icon can be deleted by dragging to the icon to the trash bin icon. Users are able to manipulate their phone more intuitively and user friendly.

As the main users of PDA phones are mostly business users, GSmart has planned to utilize the middle of the screen to display as much information as possible. For Smart Touch, it can now show the clock in two types of clock face, which are digital or hand clock, user can switch the two types of clock face simply by swiping fingers to the left and to the right. GSmart promise that it will develop further and more informative features should be able to display on the screen.

For those that still adapted to the original interface, it is flexible to switch in between the original interface and Smart Touch. However, GSmart has confidence that the user friendliness of Smart Touch will keep the users no returning to the original interface!

Like the most phone features, users also can customized its own Smart Touch screen, set their own theme, color or even use their favorite pictures as the background. The flexibility and customization is to have the users enjoying more of the new interface!

According to GSmart, the Chinese version of Smart Touch has accidently leaked to the market in April, and is already available to download from many websites. However, those illegal versions are not fully workable due to some protection. Nevertheless, Smart Touch will be introduced to European market after May, and GSmart users are able to experiences the genuine and sensational Smart Touch UI by then!

Cheers ~ Arne
