Toshiba's Mobile Communications Division has officially announced it will use Windows Mobile as a platform for its range of new Smart Handheld Devices to be introduced in Europe Q1-/Q2-2007
The first devices in the range, to be introduced at the 3GSM World Congress in Barcelona will come equipped with a suite of new features as well as email and internet connectivity, while benefiting from the flexibility and familiarity of the Windows Mobile operating system. Committing to use Windows Mobile software in this range of devices will provide Toshiba customers with straightforward compatibility with the most commonly used operating system and with the familiarity and ease of use demanded by business professionals.

"Over a decade pioneering technology in mobile computing has given us an insight into the importance of making mobile technology easy to use, so it is accepted by a wide cross section of users. Business professionals want the mobile version of their office to have the same intuitive interface that they are familiar with in the office and this is most effectively achieved with Windows Mobile. It was an obvious choice to extend the relationship with Microsoft to the Smart Handheld Device range," commented Peter Ford, Marketing Director, Toshiba Information Systems (UK) Limited.

Windows Mobile enables users to access Outlook E-Mail, calendar and contacts functions as well as mobile versions of Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint. The software allows users to surf the web using Internet Explorer and provides access to MSN and Windows Live features, including Hotmail, Live Mail, Windows Live Spaces and popular MSN web sites.

"We're thrilled to be working with Toshiba to launch a new range of Windows Mobile devices. The combination of powerful and familiar software, a fantastic user experience and innovative hardware is a winning formula for the business professional. With Toshiba, we're bringing more choice to Windows Mobile customers in a rapidly growing and increasingly diverse mobile market" said Scott Horn, General Manager, Mobile & Embedded Devices Division at Microsoft.

The combination of Toshiba’s pioneering heritage in mobile phones and computers and Microsoft’s leadership in mobile computing software makes this a powerful alliance of leading industry players.

Cheers ~ Arne
