Unveiled back in February during the 3GSM World Congress, GIGA-BYTE Communications today announced the launch of the GSmart t600 Windows Mobile 6 Professional smartphone. While a 2.5G phone only the t600 displays DVB-T TV programs on a VGA 2.6" touchscreen. While DVB-H and 3G streaming services are the defacto standards for mobile TV, in most cases these services do not provide free programs and the screen quality is lower than VGA. Comparing with DVB-H pay program, GSmart t600's DVB-T function provide users more options for free channels and that's where the beauty is.
Currently DVB-T is commercially operating in the U.K., Germany, France, Italy, Spain and many other European countries are planning to launch the service in the near future.

Now DVB-T programs are not popular yet in Russia, GIGA-BYTE Communications expect more DVB-T channels could be launched in 2008. In Russia, the GSmart t600 will be a special launch with limited availability in order to serve those advance business users who might travel abroad often. Those users can buy the GSmart t600 locally but enjoy watching DVB-T programs on the go while traveling in other European countries. GSmart t600 special Russian version will be releasing in December 2007 via Biz Bureau's distribution in Russia.
The recommended retail price is 21990 rubbles (around 615 Euro/US$ 900).

Cheers ~ Arne
