Gigabyte GSmart Rola is Low-End, Won’t Impress Many


Android may have started out big, with Nexus Ones and Droid Incredibles, but it’s winding down into a slew of low-end phones. Like the LG Optimus series, or the new Gigabyte GSmart Rola, Gigabyte’s first attempt at an Android smartphone. The Rola is packing Froyo, a 528MHz processor, 3MP camera, 256MB of RAM and 512MB of ROM, as well as a 3.2-inch WQVGA touchscreen. Of course, it has all of your standard Android WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, etc. Like I said, it’s not going to impress many, but it’s a good low-end device, and not a bad start for Gigabyte in the Android world.

  1. Actually, Gigabyte did make an Android smartphone before. The Gigabyte GSmart G1305 Codfish, also known as the Gigabyte Boston was not made available but in a few EU countries as Orange‚Äôs low budget Android 1.6 Smartphone. And it’s actually not that bad.

    It also seems like Orange is already well aware of the GSmart Rola as one of its local websites allows you to download ringtones for it.
