Also official now is the Toshiba Portégé G910 Windows Mobile smartphone which Toshiba Information Systems unveiled today. The G910 is an advanced smart mobile device for the professional user. Built around Windows Mobile 6 Professional, the G910 offers the full suite of Microsoft Office Mobile, including PowerPoint Mobile, Word Mobile, Excel Mobile and Outlook push E-Mail. Moreover, the G910 features a biometric fingerprint security solution for instant, secure access to the phone, has built in GPS for real-time navigation and has a high resolution 3" Wide-VGA touch screen that is perfect for displaying web pages.

The Portégé G910 acts like a "mobile hub" helping users stay connected whether for business or pleasure. From managing E-Mails, accessing the corporate Intranet or working on Microsoft Office files to catching-up with friends, listening to music or even playing films on the Windows Media Player. The G910 is the perfect companion to help achieve that ideal work life balance.

The G910's sleek, sophisticated clamshell design and full QWERTY keyboard gives it the look and feel of a mini laptop. Furthermore, the Portégé G910 provides the ultimate in security with a biometric fingerprint reader allowing only the user to unlock and access all the content on their device - ideal for ensuring this doesn't end up in the wrong hands.

The built-in GPS function has added benefits to the user by mapping out location and directions from A to B in seconds, perfect for the busy business traveller trying to find their way in a city or new town/country. By supporting Qualcomm's gpsOneXTRA Assistance technology, the G910 provides a faster "first fix' with greater GPS sensitivity indoors and in challenging dense urban environments.

The G910's unique 3" wide-VGA touch screen display also ensures the user sees more information with less scrolling and provides them with a resolution that is five times better than a standard QVGA display. Working on Microsoft Office documents can become a reality at last, plus the Opera browser on board help bring the perfect web 2.0 experience.

The G910 also provides all of the key functions you'd expect including a 2 mega-pixel camera perfect for "capturing the moment' and a second camera for video telephony, high connectivity from WiFi to HSDPA as well as support for the micro SD card.
