These two smartphones have seen a very slow run to market, but Malaysian website Mobilehornet.com reports the handset will finally ship in that area within the next 30 days.

Interestingly the Windows Mobile powered M20 at RM2,099 ($589) will cost more than the linux-based G60 RM1,799 ($505), but this of course is easy to explain due to the increased functionality of the device.
