The second device, Giga-Byte Communications previewed during the 3GSM World Congress is the G-Smart q60, a UMTS/HSDPA Windows Mobile 6 Professional smartphone.
Featuring singleband UMTS/HSDPA and triband GSM/GPRS/EDGE as well as a thumb keyboard, this messaging device is mostly addressing the business market, especially because it also includes a GPS receiver. However, it's XScale CPU with 520 MHz is even strong enough to support the devices inbuilt Bluetooth 2.0 and WiFi b/g but it also includes support for digital TV as well as digital DAB radio.
Last but not least, it's sporting a 2.1 megapixel camera on the back and a VGA camera on the front for video telephony over UMTS:

Availability isn't announced yet but we might see to be released during this summer as well. First roll-out can be expected in Taiwan, followed by Europe.

What the heck does "but it also includes support for digital TV as well as digital DAB radio" actually mean???

Does it come with a tv- tuner built in, or does it not? It seems very strange that they are so clearly specifying what formats are supported by t600, but say nothing abt the q60?

I am doubtful, and probably it's either GPS OR some sort of TV- support?

But I'm hoping I'm wrong... any additional info would be appreciated!

Another question - is it the q60, or the q600?

Oh, I'm sorry! It's indeed the q60!
