Toshiba Portege G710 GPS PDA phone presented in Italy
Well, CES Las Vegas has come and gone, but, contrary to our predictions there were no new Toshiba mobile phones or PDAs announced there.
Nevertheless we continue to insist that Toshiba Portege G710 GPS/PDA phone is real, just like the other devices from the Russian Toshiba mobile products roadmap, and will be announced very soon now.
And while we are waiting for the official acknowledgement, various regional Toshiba offices continue to unofficially show off the new Portege mobile line.
Let’s start with Toshiba G710 Portege GPS/PDA phone:
Upcoming Toshiba Portege G710 specs are:
- Quad band GSM (850/900/1800/1900), GPRS/EDGE
- Windows Mobile 6 Standard OS
- 2.46″ 65K color QVGA (480×800) (?) display
- 2 megapixel camera with 8x digital zoom
- Built-in GPS
- 128 MB ROM, 64 MB RAM
- MicroSD memory card slot
- Bluetooth A2DP, USB 1.1
- 1100 mAh battery with up to 200 hrs stand-by and 180 min talk time
- Dimensions: 115x62x13 mm
- Weight: 130 g
I’m almost sure that Pocket PC Italia has mixed up the display resolution for Toshiba G710. 480×800 pixel is a Wide VGA resolution, not QVGA, which stands for 240×320 and is much more likely to fit 2.46″ screen size.
Otherwise, Toshiba Portege G710 looks like a good and affordable e-mail/messaging device with a nice addition of GPS navigation capabilities.
