its out in germany in few weeks and coming to uk in late june but it quite expensive,,aparently play.com has pre-order for £599
just the thing i want and 3g just sucks your battery flat if you can get it
the problem with gigabyte is that they are taking too long for launching a devise, so they loose market. the t600 was pressented one year ago and still not launch for europe.
so i think nokia will be surpraising us with
better models with tv in a few months adn then the t600 will become old, as it is getting old already
no english version yet,check on their web site, there´s only chinesse and rusian version,english version maybe in 2 months but that´s too late, new things better ones will be showed in the 3gsmcongress.
Hello. Is there ENGLISH version of menu on this phone , because people use this phone in England and only I can buy is taiwan version of this phone
Wow, it seems evrybodys T600 has some kind of problem. Mine included. the problem I have is when it went into standby mode, sometimes it cannot be waken. I have also notice the white screen problem. Wifi is yet another problem, if the phone freeze while the wifi mode is on, after you take the battery out and turn the phone on again, the wifi will forever shown as on but there is no network detected. It is like somhow the wifi have been disabled. very strange.
This phone is such a crap.
DONT BUY ANYTHING FROM GIGABYTE.
Just got my t600 back. At first the screen did not shows anything after standby, so I send it back for repare. and now after the service been done, the touch screen wont respond to touch at all.
There is no quality control at all at Gigabyte appearantly. They dont even bother to check if the device works ok before send it back to me.
No, Mik. the problem you descripe is not only happen to you. Mine has the smae problem- what I call the white screen symdrom upon wakenning from standby mode. Also the weak signals, low valume. I have sent mine back to Taiwan to repair, it's said there is a fault in the mother board. You should do the same, so they will know the problem is not a isolated case. And finally to clearfy, the DVB-T and DAB does work in the UK. At least in some parts of London, such as in Pushy park. 3 weeks ago my car broke down in the park while I was waittinf for aa to come, I turn the dvb-t on and to my surprise I finally got the signle and pick up about 20 something channels most of which are dab tho.
One last thing, at the moment the device is only come with chinese rom, I ask the customer service to change mine t600 to english rom while they fix it. and the answer I got is, the english rom is still in testing stage and wont be available till november.
First of all, the phone itself looks very good and the display is just awsome!! but there are few problems that pissed me off. Sometimes when other party call you, the connection goes through, but my T600 just doesnt respond or without any incoming call identifications. It works fine after restarting. This is not frequent, but it happens every couple of days. I guess i'm the only one who has this problem.
Second, the battery life is a bit concerning, but since Canada has no DVB the battery is actually just fine for me. And at last the phone connections to phone network seems to be quite weak when compared to my previous phone. Overall, this is a very nice looking phone but the price is a bit too high.
I think the major problem of all Gigabyte models is battery life. 3h expected and probably less than one day if you are working with it.
Other problem is that company has no experience in phones (like Nokia) and 1-2 years they will make some test on our money. The phone will have different small bug (wifi, battery life, audio quality,so)
Finaly I love Gigabyte, I want to test some phones but in Europe is no official reseller.
does it come with the sofware in inglish, the one you bought in tapei
Got mine in Taipei 3 weeks ago while on holiday. The phone itself is "gorgeous" and the VGA screen is out of this world. The DVB-T works brilliantty in most part of Taiwan and the quality of picture is just amazing.
Having said that, the DVB-T is not working in Indonisia or UK. I cannot find any channel while in Bali and now back in London- still no luck.
There is no DAB software buildin, so even t600 supports DAB, it is no use at all.
It costs me $24000 NT, which is roughly £350.
It is ok as a windows mobile but without the mobile tv reception in the UK, I don't think it is worth buying for the UK consumers.
One last thing, the VGA screen seems to drain battery out like there is no tomorrow. It's good thing I bought 2 spair batteries.
So, my advise is- before buy it, make sure the DVB-T works in your area!!
what ticks me off with gigabye is there lack of hmm, edge on there phones... there phones should all have at least edge gprs? That’s like slow, and if I would have known better I would have looked for a phone that had edge... come on thats so pathetic... if i ever get another pocketPC it will be one that is fully loaded, and no compromises... the only thing that will compromise is probably my wallet lol... still waiting what in the world Tmobile will do with 3G
It is already avaliable in Taiwan with chinese language only, I hope it will be launched in europe soon.
The MAIN + is , that it got gorgeous screen!
You can watch whole web page on the screen whith readable text! Although you'll need magnifying lens ; ))
Piece of beauty!!
Yes, it's main minus is the lacks of 3G, but who the f*ck uses 3G frequently?! Mainly wi-fi and in some cases GPRS, that provides enough speed for normal internet browsing(dont forget it will be normal for browsing without opening imgaes option), so GPRS or HSDPA, the difference is some seconds in the speed, so?! So cause of these 1-2seconds u dont hear about t600? lol!
Neverthless this piece of technology won't get far away in the World's market.. I'm sure it will be "quite" hard to find it in Europe.. Maybe impossible..! :( St*pid europe market.. Always provides only the "best of the best" products from the best companies...(Nokia, Se, Samsung, Lg etc etc.)..!! F*ck them!
Excellent job Gigabyte! U showed again that your products are NOT worse than more popular companie's products..
Good luck now, and in future!
