Gizmondo To Come in Widescreen Version
Gizmondo Europe Ltd has confirmed that the widescreen model in the Gizmondo range is now developed, following the publishing of unofficial prototype photographs.

The WiFi and GSM Voice-enabled Gizmondo Widescreen had been kept under wraps as part of its R&D project. It was developed as a key component of an ongoing product roadmap that currently includes plans for a number of different devices, all of which feature the unique combined functionality of games, music, movies, messaging, a digital camera and GPS technology.

The new Widescreen device will compliment the current Gizmondo, due to launch shortly in North America, and give entertainment-hungry consumers more choice in terms of specification and feature sets, as well as an upgrade path - which will be detailed prior to the projected release in the second quarter of 2006.

The new model comes with a 4" Widescreen (480 x 272 pixel). The Processor's speed has been moved up to 500MHz and memory are increased to power a suite of new onboard applications serviced via WiFi (WLAN 802.11b/g), Bluetooth version 2, and tri-band GSM technology, making it the most powerfully connected handheld entertainment device available. WiFi expands the multiplayer and interconnectivity possibilities for all Gizmondo owners.

Also new is the addition of a Transflash card reader, while keeping the SD slot. The Bluetooth software now offers support for telephony (Headset/Handsfree), gaming, and stereo headsets.
