"Along with its new G900 Windows Mobile 6 device, Toshiba also announced the new G500 Windows Mobile 5 smartphone from 3GSM in Barcelona this week. This attractive 3G handset has solid features to match its solid feel, with connectivity options to please business users. Tri-band GSM and HSDPA connectivity are mated with Bluetooth and 802.11b/g WiFi, making Microsoft's Direct Push email solution quick and easy. Up to 10 days standby and 3 hours UMTS talk time will keep you going strong, and a 2.0 megapixel camera makes the G500 great for the weekends as well as for the office. The large 2.3" QVGA resolution TFT display makes usage simple, and fingerprint recognition keeps your data secure. The Toshiba G500 includes 64MB of on board memory, with miniSD memory expansion. From our hands-on with the device at 3GSM, we can tell you that the Toshiba G500 is a solid feeling handset, though the odd hinging of the soft keys makes them a little difficult to use."
MobileBurn.com has posted a preview, along with some nice photos, of the Toshiba slider Smartphone announced at the recent 3GSM. It looks like the official name for this Smartphone is G500. As stated earlier in the FCC post,
it is running Windows Mobile 5
and is a 3G Tri-band
GSM unit. Wish the specs were as good as the awesome styling.
