It's touchclassy screen galore over at the GSMA and Gigabyte are claiming a piece of the action with the g-Smart MS820 and S1200. They're both 3G enabled PocketPCs with Wi-Fi, Office Mobile and fancy UI plug-ins.

Other shared features are GPS, microSD memory expansion and push email support, Bluetooth and miniUniversal Serial Bus (USB) 2.0.

Similar as these devices are, a few differences emerge upon closer inspection.

The Gigabyte S1200 is a recent release unlike the MS820. It adds HSUPA to the connectivity set and a larger 3.1" WVideo Graphics Array (VGA) screen. At 11.4 mm, it's not the thinnest PocketPC, but definitely on the slim side.

And there's another surprise in store - in the specifications, Gigabyte lists the Operating System (OS) as Windows Mobile 6.1/6.5 Professional.

This time around, Gigabyte opted for a Flash UI plug-in instead of their Smart Touch. It seems that the Gigabyte S1200 offers almost anything you could want in a PocketPC. It may be a small late to the party however, a 528Mega Hertz (MHz) Central Processing Units (CPU) with 128 Mega Bytes (MB) Random-Access Memory (RAM) already considered average. We didn't hrecent that against the MS820, but it's been around for a while. A 3 megapixel autofocus capturing camera is the last thing on the Gigabyte S1200 spec sheet to note.

The g-Smart MS820 is not exactly novel. It featured at the 2008 Computex and even snatched the Taiwan Excellence Silver Award for its accelerometer feature. The G-Sensor is utilized as a navigation solution in several applications and games.

Gigabyte MS820 sports a 5 megapixel capturing camera with autofocus and face detection - a rarity in the Windows Mobile world. Other than that, the phone supports HSDPA and is powered by a Marvell PXA270 520Mega Hertz (MHz) Central Processing Units (CPU) and uses 128 Mega Bytes (MB) of RAM.

Windows Mobile is nicely tucked under the proprietary Smart Touch UI, version 3. It's a touch optimized UI - the Gigabyte respond to TouchFlo by HTC. With a 2.8 inch display of Video Graphics Array (VGA) resolution, it looks pretty sleek.
