Toshiba announces Portege G910, G710 and G450
G910 is a side-opening clamshell smartphone with a form-factor similar to the one of Nokia E90 Communicator. The difference is that, most likely, in order to be used the new Toshiba has to be opened, since it lacks a standard keypad and display on its front panel. The G910 runs on Windows Mobile 6 Professional and has a large QWERTY. There also is a 2-megapixel camera, a VGA one for video calling and a WVGA (480x800) 3” display. The phone disposes of a built-in GPS and supports 2100 HSDPA, 900/1800/1900 GSM/EDGE and GPRS class 10, which means it is intended for the Eropean market and is not suitable for the US. The expected price of the G910 is $880 (€600).
G710, which looks like a BlackBerry, is a Global GPS PDA also based on Windows Mobile but the Standard version of the OS and it doesn’t support 3G. The display is presented as a 2.46” WVGA (800x480), but looking at it, we presume it’s a QVGA. Supposedly its price will be $440 (€300).
G450 supports the Europeans bands and is 3G UMTS/HSDPA capable. It is very small (98 x 36 x 16 mm) and plugs in a USB port to function as a modem. The G450 has only a OLED display and a 160MB of built-in memory and it is expected to cost $290 (€199).
