While the Giga-Byte GSmart t600 design is over one year old already, it's still quite stylish, if you like white "iPodish" mobile devices.
The front is glossy white, with a white surface under a clear paint while the backside is white plastic only. In any case, the surface is quite fingerprint resistant and not a magnet at all. However, the t600 still features the old screen technique with a bezel but the 2.6" touchscreen supports a VGA resolution. In addition to the Windows Mobile smartphone typical call and end button, the device features a huge D-Pad which looks like a scroll wheel but isn't a wheel at all. Furthermore it has the Pocket PC typical Start and OK button as well as two soft-buttons under the screen.

On the backside, the device features a 2 megapixel autofocus camera with photo light as well as the loudspeaker. On the left side the volume slider is located while on the right side the typical camera shutter is placed as well as the microSD card slot, protected by a flap as well as the propriety stereo headset connector - also flap protected.
On the bottom, the device features a mini USB jack.

As mentioned in the previously published unboxing videoview, the package includes a telescope antenna which is used for DVB-T and a telescope stylus but the device can either hold the one or the other. Unfortunately, the antenna lacks a hinge which means - because TV is shown in landscape - that the antenna overlaps on the left quite heavy - if completely pulled-out.








Coming next - a couple of videoviews which shows the device and DVB-T in action.
