For those that were not aware that Gigabyte make anything other than motherboards, think again. Within Asia they are familiar with the mobile phone manufacturing industry and are now looking to get their hands dirty with Android. Expected for release in north America, the ‘Codfish’ is set to land with Android 1.6. Despite the clear oversight with the odd name, the bigger problem here has to be the version choice of Android. Indeed, Android 1.6 seems rather dated now compared to the bells and whistles many of us are already using with Android 2.1.

According to PointGPhone, who took the picture you see on the right, the phone is very responsive and has excellent build quality. In all honesty these type of comments smell distinctly of a reviewer who has been lucky enough to receive an exclusive on a rather dull device and is searching for nice things to say. With that said, the device does offer a 3.2-inch display and 5 megapixel camera, plonking it firmly in the mid-range bracket.
