Draft in fact of a device from the remarkable constructive quality (edited by the Toshiba laboratories, since the producer is one of the little to realize own dispositive you in the own plants) and equipped of detailed lists of wrap high that render the Portégé G500 particularly adapted to the advanced professional user, beyond naturally the fan of technology."</i> <br /><br /><br /><img src="http://www.smartphonethoughts.com/images/Temporale-20070327-ToshibaG500.jpg" alt="User submitted image" title="User submitted image"/> <br /><br />Alright, maybe the <a href="http://translate.google.com/translate?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.pocketpcitalia.com%2FRecensioni%2FSmartphone%2FAnteprima-Toshiba-Port%25C3%25A9g%25C3%25A9-G500%2F&langpair=it%7Cen&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&prev=%2Flanguage_tools">Google Translation</a> isn't all that good, but it's still a good article that I think is worth checking out. As we have all heard during the 3GSM conference, Toshiba is back into the Windows Mobile arena and this time they are offering a Smartphone - slider style too! Overall the specs are pretty nice. However, there are 2 main issues. The first one being that the phone is only Tri-Band. Hopefully Toshiba will release 2 different Tri-Band versions so that everyone can enjoy this device. The second issue is less of an issue and that is the fact that the phone runs Windows Mobile 5. The reason I say it's not much of an issue, is because I've heard that it will be upgraded to Windows Mobile 6. :D

The coolest thing about it is the finger printer reader that can be used to scroll up and down, left and right. And also it can be programmed to launch an app or shortcut for each finger. :)

But I really hate the fact that it is Tri-band GSM.

Tri-band is like this dirty little feature that keeps sticking it's ugly little head up and killing an otherwise great device. :evil:
