We have another first to report: a Windows Mobile software company teaming up with a hardware maker on a new device. The result is the Toshiba Portege G810, which comes with several software enhancements out of the box made by Spb Software House.
Let’s do a rundown of specs. It’s a WinMo 6.1 quadband GSM device that also packs HSDPA/HSUPA. It is being sold in Europe as of a few days ago, but it will work on US GSM carriers (T-Mobile and AT&T). It sports the same Qualcomm 400MHz processor as the i-mate 9502 and HTC TyTN II. It has 256MB ROM, 128MB of RAM, WiFi (b/g), Bluetooth 2.0, USB 2.0, aGPS, and a nice-sized 1530mAh battery powering it all (as comparison, the HTC Touch, a similar device, has a 1100mAh battery). The screen is 2.8″, and unfortunately is QVGA and not VGA.
After using the device for a few minutes, I can report that the Portege G810 has the following software enhancements form Spb Software House: Mobile Shell, Pocket Plus (Today screen additions plus flick scrolling), and Full screen keyboard. I’ve got some more exploring to do to see if there are any other enhancements.
More to come!
