Toshiba seem to have designed the Portege G910/G920 as a clamshell, probably to make it appear like a mini-laptop; it comes with HSDPA, 3G, Wi-Fi, along with integrated GPS receiver. Both handsets have the Qualcomm MSM7200 platform which is popular with HTC. Both devices will have a 3 inch touch-screen TFT WXGA display, and run on the Windows Mobile 6.0 Pro operating system.

It does appear that the once suggested 3 megapixel camera has been dropped and a 2 megapixel has been put in as replacement. Also missing on the Toshiba Portege G910/G920 is a UBS host; however they are equipped with biometric fingerprint scanner, along with VoIP and Bluetooth. The Toshiba Portege G910 should be in Europe in Q1 08 with a rough price set at EUR 600.

    This would be a fantastic WM pda phone but it fails to do one of the most important tasks: being useable as a phone. If oyu are in a hurry and need to make a call be prepared to open the lid and use both hands to find the number even if you use the WM dial pad. Moreover the busy tone can hadly be heard and speaker and headphnes volume is very low. Apart form this the phone is a dream, the screen has even too much resolution that remains unexplited by most of the usual applications. It would suffice to allow to redial from call list, making it available to the user in the external mini screen to alleviate the problem of the useability. Hey toshiba could you add this in a sw update?
