3GSM a plethora of new Windows Mobile devices!


3GSM is going crazy with new Windows Mobile devices being announced almost every hour!

I was able to play with most of these devices last week when I was in Redmond.  It's great to see them finally announced!

First of up - the Toshiba G900 Windows Mobile device! 

 

This device has an amazing screen at 800x400!   It also has:

  • Built-in fingerprint sensor
  • Windows Mobile 6
  • Panoramic display with resolution of 800×400 pixels
  • miniSD card slot
  • Bluetooth 2.0 and Wi-Fi 802.11/b/g
  • USB host feature
  • 2 cameras, one for video calling and the second one for taking photos (2 megapixel)
  • 64 MB internal memory
  • slide-out QWERTY keyboard
  •  

    The next device sees HP enter the Smartphone device arena with the Ipaq 512 Voice Messenger device!

    You can find more details on the device HERE but it's specification looks really interesting especially with UMA support!

    • Integrated Quad band GSM/GPRS/EDGE wireless radio with automatic band transition1,2,3,4
    • Integrated WiFi – 802.11 b/g with WPA2 security1
    • Integrated Bluetooth® v1.2 wireless technology
    • TI OMAP 850 Processor 200 MHz
    • Integrated Micro-SD slot (memory only)
    • Removable/rechargeable Li-ion1100 mAh battery
    • 2.0" transflective TFT 176x220 with 64K color LED backlight display
    • Windows Mobile® 6 Standard

    Then Motorola announce the MOTO Q q9 and the MOTO Q GSM!  The q9 has HSDPA and 256Mb of Internal Memory - the Q GSM takes the incredibly successful CDMA Q platform and translates that to the GSM Market - the device is GSM and Edge but not 3G 🙁

    HTC also announced 3 new devices!

     

  • HTC Advantage (X7500) – The most powerful mobile office to date, the HTC Advantage is smarter and lighter than the smallest PC notebook. It supports Microsoft Outlook Mobile for quick access to email, calendar, task and contact functions. It is also the first device to feature HTC’s VueFLO™ easy navigation technology and detachable keyboard. A first for business functionality with high-speed global connectivity (Tri-Band 3G/ 3.5G (HSDPA) and Quad-Band GSM/GPRS/EDGE), the HTC Advantage is packed with PC-style power, functionality and multimedia features.

  • HTC S710 – This compact and stylish messaging phone features a semi auto-sliding QWERTY keyboard, redefining the smartphone form factor. Offering more than a sleek new look, this model is one of the first devices to use Microsoft Windows Mobile 6 for a powerful and engaging mobile experience. Windows Mobile 6 offers new capabilities to view emails in rich HTML format, easier email management through new shortcuts and new calendar views that enhance how people can stay on top of their work when away from the office.

    The Ultimate range consists of a collection of five devices in various form factors to suit individual preferences, from classic bar to PDA to a notebook replacement and was designed to provide the latest and best in phone and PDA technology. From the 530MHz processor, to the XGA direct video out, from HSDPA connectivity to the 262k colour VGA LCD touch screen, every component of each device is specified at a very high level.

     

    One of the amazing things about the Ultimate range is that they output XGA video resolution (1024x768)

      Jason,

      Have you had an face time with the HTC S710?  Just wondering if you have any thoughts on this new form factor.

    2. Jason, I’m sure you didn’t get much time with these, but I’m curious: you’ve got the G900 listed as 800 x 400 resolution, but most other reports I’ve read indicated WVGA resolution, which would be 800 x 480. Based on what you saw is it 400 or 480 res? Thanks!
