i have this phone for 3 months now, here are some of the problems:
- hangs every 4 - 5 hrs
- hangs when its off (screen off)
- install any software, hangs every hour
- dead pixel already
- internet explorer doesnt work properly after extensive use (after 1 hour)
- no screen protector,pouch,extra stylus like the htc products
- camera is useless, would have been better if no camera at all
- finger print scanner is a gimmick, only used for short cut to open an application (when set) dont know if it works with 3rd party software for security
- reset button is inside next to battery, so everytime you have to reset, u have to take off the battery cover, which has become loose already.
- goes into silent mode ramdomly
have sent it back to toshiba, hoping to get my refund ! my adivice DO NOT buy this product. complitely useless. if there was an award for useless product, this one would win hands down !!
Does it work with normal gps sirf star III receiver? Because their BT standard is SPP...
Please answer to me, also to my e-mail
Question: How about Remote Client to Windows XP/Vista desktop with this phone?
Hi , let's check out this -> Toshiba G920
great phone.i just think its a pretty heavy phone.its a perfect business phone i guess.
keep it up Toshiba!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i think that the portege g900 is marvelous.
I own this pocket PC for about 1 and a half months and the experience with it it's just not the most pleasant. For a person that is always on the move and is communication dependent like me it fits perfect. It has the screen with the high resolution, text is clear, very readable and makes web surfing comfortable.
Now here are the problems. I think Toshiba released this thing while still in a beta development stage. The early models had a lot of bugs including the standby of death (it goes in to standby and never wakes up). Then came version 2.2 which is the latest and I have it. They fixed many bugs but the standby problem is just half fixed. Now it happens only when data sessions are active, but it still is very annoying because there are apps that connect automatically and then the phone cracks. You will miss a lot of important calls if you are not very careful what apps are running to close them and always check often if the damn thing is deeply sleeping again. Another annoying thing is the battery life. Unless you have a mobile charger with you then a spare battery would be a good idea.
Until Toshiba works these bugs out, I suggest that who ever is interested in G900 better look at the offers from the other manufacturers. By the way, support is also very poor. You can read more on myg900.com forum.
Well I have the Toshiba M 400 Tablet PC, it was almost the complete PC one can Imagine, except for built in camera, and the connectivity ports (serial and S Video)
Now I see that this G 900 is still a far behind, I wish Toshiba lives up to its slogan of in touch with tomorrow.
I would be ready to buy a Toshiba if it has Quad band, wifi, 512 MB internal SD RAM memory, Multiple memory card slots expandable upto 12 GB, 8 and above Mega pixel camera and Superb GPS system, even better if it can have double sim card slots.
I belive than they are living up to their slogan of In touch with tomorrow.
This phone lags behind the N95 Nokia 8 GB
i just can't get it why they keep making triband phones instead of quadband
to fiftyone, I am not chef, but I wish to give a help on your question. I am not an owner of this phone, neither the TyTN II Kaiser phone, but I think the TyTN II is more popular because one factor is it has built-in GPS, while this phone doesn't have (according to this site) and another thing is that the brand HTC when it comes to PDA has already established its name. I don't know if my answer was just or has helped your question, but I hope somehow, it did. thanks. :-)
1. Is the text really readable at 800x480? Does all apps work at this res? Is the screen visible in sunlight?
Not visible at sunlight, the text is readable but really small, and not all programs work at that res (ex, SPB NOW screen)
2. Does it support A2DP?
3. Does the performance lag when 4-5 Apps are running simultaneously?
The performance is good. also with lots of apps open.
4. Can it record video at 640x480@30fps?
no, only QVGA
5. Anybody knows if this handset is available in Malaysia! And what could be the price?
Thanks in advance.
is there already a ROM upgrade for G900? Where can i find it? I need it badly. Someone pls help....
oh well.... n95 8gb might win this but n95 lose totally if you talkin about pda phone as n95 don have touch screen, smaller screen, & basically you guys cant compare with this 2 phones as n95 more likely to be a 'phone' meanwhile g900 more likely to be a 'pda phone' juz a piece of my mind no hard feelin
The_Chef it would be great if you could give us an update on your experiences with the G900.
It appears that this phone is not as popular as HTC's TyTN II which seems to be selling well. I wonder why? There must be specific reasons.
Toshiba were brave to go for a staggering WVGA res on a three inch screen so they should be commended. Yet it is clear that the present day PPC user craves for and expects fast, dynamic, reliable operation.
FDR operation coupled with VGA and WVGA res on small screens
(2.6-3.5 inch screens) is proving to be an Everestian challenge!
