Gizmondo hits North American retail market 11 August
Gizmondo Europe Ltd has confirmed the street date for North America of its multi-entertainment handheld as the 11 August 2005.

The device comes with a 2.8-inch TFT color screen with a Samsung ARM900 400MHz processor and incorporates GoForce 3D 4500 NVIDIA graphics accelerator. It provides gaming, multimedia messaging, a MP3 music player, Mpeg4 movie playing capability, a digital camera, and a GRPS network link to allow wide-area network gaming. It also contains a GPS chip for location based services and it is equipped with Bluetooth for use in multi-player gaming.

One of the features of the Gizmondo handheld is the Smart Adds, which delivers targeted advertising through the GPRS connection to users who buy a cheaper version of the device. In the UK the Gizmondo is sold with an optional Vodafone SIM card so gamers can enable this function.
