Gigabyte will have an Android handset, but it's not the one you saw

I saw a few of these pictures floating around a little while ago, when Gigabyte was announcing it was putting out an Android handset. “Good for them,” I thought, “but they couldn’t come up with something a little more original?” As it turns out — they might have. Because it turns out those pictures were fakeity-fake. I mean, the pictures themselves were real pictures, but they did not depict an actual Gigabyte handset. Seems weird that there would be this amount of intrigue associated with something as un-exciting as a phone launch by a relatively minor player, but hey. I don’t make the news, I just report it.

The GSmart PR person added that the phone they’re working on is totally different, and likely won’t be seen until late 2010. You’d think they would hurry — by late 2010 we’re going to be swimming in Android devices.
