Gigabyte Communications Unveils the g-X5 Slider Mobile Handset in Taiwan

Gigabyte Communications, the popular motherboard manufacturer, is bringing the Taiwanese market their first mobile handset, the Gigabyte g-X5. The handset is a stylish piano black slider handset that supports GSM 900/1800/1900Mhz bands, and features a 2.6 million color TFT display along with a megapixel camera (1152 x 864 resolution).

In a sea of mobile devices, the Gigabyte g-x5 tries to differentiate itself by featuring tri-axis motion sensing, which enables handset users to interact with games by simply moving the g-X5 in their hand. Another interesting feature is its Points of Interest (POI) function which combines e-maps with… guess what?…places of interests such as restaurant establishments and tour routes that are recommended by the magazine Walker. Ok, this feature will probably work only in Taiwan but it’s interesting technology don’t you think?
