Toshiba in Barcelona: Portege G810 with GPS

The Portégé G810 is an intriguing PocketPC offer by Toshiba. If we're to suggest a reference point for this touchscreen PDA, we couldn't even dream of a more suitable nominee than the HTC Touch Cruise. A brief look at the specs is enough to convince that the two devices have a great deal of similarities, from physical size to the processor that powers them. In the same time, G810 does stand out among Toshiba PocketPCs, marking a distinct departure from the full-QWERTY Toshiba Portégé G900.

The neat and conservative Portégé G810 stands at only 14mm thick and brings a stylish black mirror finish. G810 has an ample 2.8" 65K-color touchscreen display of QVGA resolution. We can only guess at this stage, but we do believe the display and interface are optimized to ensure stylus-free handling.

The built-in GPS and A-GPS give the user a full-fledged navigation device. Additional connectivity stuff includes Bluetooth v2.0, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g and USB v2.0.

Toshiba Portégé G810 is a global phone, with support for both quad-band GSM/EDGE and tri-band UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA. The high-end device runs on Windows Mobile Professional OS.

G810 is powered by a Qualcomm MSM7200 (400MHz) processor, utilizing 256MB of ROM and 128MB RAM. The Li-Ion battery of 1530 mAh capacity is quoted at 200 hours in standby and 4 hours of talk time. microSD memory expansion is available (up to 4GB cards supported).

Microsoft direct push e-mail is more than welcome on this business minded gadget. Still, the G810 has enough of the media capabilities to look for in a high-end device: a 3 megapixel autofocus camera, FM radio with RDS, Windows Media player.

Toshiba Portégé G810 will be available across Europe in Q2 2008, but the price is still unknown.
