<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.geekzone.co.nz/content.asp?ContentId=1574' target='_blank'>http://www.geekzone.co.nz/content.asp?ContentId=1574</a><br /><br /></div>Geekzone wonders if the Mystery Partner, expected to be announced tomorrow, might be Toshiba. "Toshiba released information that it will exhibit a range of innovative products and technologies during the ITU Telecom World 2003. The major telecommunication trade show will be held at Geneva Palexpo, Switzerland, from 12 to 18 October. Could this be the mysterious partner Microsoft will announce 8th October?"<br /><br />This isn't the grand leap in logic some might think it is. Toshiba, after all, sells CDMA phones to the Chinese market and is also in on the Audiovox Pocket PC Phone Edition.<br /><br />Being a <i>former</i> Toshiba e740 Pocket PC user, I certainly have my opinions about the prospects of a Smartphone from Toshiba. I'm sure some of you do, too. :twisted:

Sad news if it turns out to be Toshiba. However, it does look like it could be them. :?

Yeah, I just got an e-mail about it, thanks. I posted it on the front page. Guess we'll have to hold on until tomorrow! :D

I am not even going to get close another Toshiba product after what they did with the Pocket PC.
