Today at CES 2008, Wistron, a Chinese design house, showed off their latest GW4 smartphone, which is capable of running the new Google Android. When it was showcased, the GW4 was running a version of MontaVista Linux 2.6, but according to a Wistron spokesperson, it will be Android ready by March.

The GW4 is a tri-band GSM smartphone equipped with a 2.5-inch, 320x240 touch screen, a 2.0 megapixel camera, TI OMAP 1710 chipset with a 216-MHz processor and 64 MB of memory. The only way to get on the net is with the built-in 802.11g Wi-Fi or using GPRS. Decisions, decisions.

Wistron confirmed that a 3G version of the GW4 will be coming out by the end of 2008, but hopefully HTC will have at least one of their three handsets ready by then.
