So we have learned yesterday, that Virgin Mobile will launch its mobile TV service later this summer and as BT (one of the partners) confirmed today, it's not a trial but should be seriously seen as a commercial launch! Also BT confirmed, that the HTC Trilogy, which was presented yesterday, will be indeed the commercial hardware for this service launch. I will leave the review to someone else from UK, where the service will be launched but anyway, here we go with some live photos of the device, some already called a "ruggedized Smartphone". Interesting enough, on yesterday's press photos, it looks way huger than it is in reality, which doesn't mean that it is nice anyway:

Oh, and even more important - it is running Windows Mobile 5.0, not 2003 as showed in the press release photos!

Cheers ~ Arne

ja ja ja, ich weiss, das G-Smart ist ein PocketPC. Ich nehme alles zurück und behaupte das Gegenteil! :-P

Interesting phone, though it looks like it has cancer on its side.

Arne, love the site but can't sand the microfont, it is barely readible in Safari browser

Yeah, this "cancer" thing is ugly. Wonder which antenna is under the plastic. ;-)
Regarding the Safari browser: you are getting the mobile version, not the desktop version. This is because of the auto redirect and unfortunately Safari identifies itself as "PPC" (Power PC) but I use PPC as identification for Pocket PCs. Have to get this fixed ASAP. However, a friend of me told me yesterday that with FireFox the site looks fine, also on an Apple. Maybe you want to check.
