First of all, we are wondering why Samsung pick the word “Gio” as it GT S5660 name (trademark?). Let make a little research. We type “Gio” in Google and the result is refer to the Australian Insurance Company (What a turn over!). And the conclusion is: We couldn’t find the real “meaning” of the “Gio”. It seems that the Gio is just sound “good” and sexy “name”.
Let forget about it. Back to business. Samsung Galaxy Gio design is a little bit “girly” with four rounded Corner. As a family of Samsung Galaxy, Samsung Galaxy Gio that has a series name as GT-S5660, currently runs under Android Operating System by Google. There is no Physical Qwerty Keyboard. This means that the Gio only equipped with Virtual On Screen Qwerty Keyboard as a tool of Inputting Text Message such as for SMS or create Email or even editing the Microsoft Power Point Document.
The Display Screen uses TFT HVGA (Half-Size Video Graphic Array) at 320 x 480 pixels Resolution on 3.2 inches Display Diagonal Diameter. Gio’s Display has 16M colors and equipped with Multi Touch Input method, TouchWiz V.3.0 UI, installed with Proximity Sensor and Accelerometer Sensor (two basic sensor with had to be existed in Smartphone with Touchscreen UI, one for Auto Rotate Orientation, and the others -Proximity Sensor – for Auto Turn Off the Screen while in “Calling Mode”). One good news is this Touchscreen already polished with Swype Text Input for faster typing in Touchscreen Display.
The Body design is quite slime and light. It currently has 110.5 x 57.5 x 12.2 mm which very fit on the ways you wanna insert it in pocket jacket or in the wallet. It only has 102 gram on its weight.
