Philips GoGear Gets Gingerbread And New Threads


The Philips GoGear gets the new look and new flavour of Android. The new GoGear has gone from white to black, lost its trackball in favour of specific touchscreen display, and exchanged Android 2.1 for Gingerbread. Its competition from Samsung, the device also has access to Android Market and all those apps that lesser PMPs lack. We can able to see some copper coloured buttons and speaker grill running along its right side to form a good design, but the overall fit and finish not to mention the lack of backlight for the screen demonstrated that it was not quite ready for primetime. Philips told it will be getting ready on September debut for the 8GB and 16GB versions(at $179 and to be determined price points respectively), and promised a 32GB version will follow later.
