Toshiba demos two new high-end slider smartphones

Toshiba G900 and G500

Toshiba joined the deluge of 3GSM phone announcements on Monday by revealing two of its best-performing phones ever. The G900 competes against slide-out keyboard devices from HTC and UT Starcom with an extremely high-resolution, 800x480 3-inch display and a large suite of Internet connections. US-friendly, tri-band HSDPA mobile Internet is incorporated into the shell alongside Wi-Fi, legacy EDGE support, and Bluetooth 2.0. A 2-megapixel camera at the back as well as a VGA camera at the front round out its core hardware. Much like other phones announced today, the G900 is driven by Windows Mobile 6.

Read through for a larger photo and details of the more calling-focused G500.



Geared more towards strict calling roles than texting, the G500 (below) still retains all the Internet access and media features of the G900 while switching to the more prevalent number pad slider. It concedes only through a smaller (but resolution unknown) LCD and the use of the older Windows Mobile 5 OS for its features. Neither availability nor pricing for either of Toshiba's latest smartphones is currently listed. However, the phones are likely to sit at the top of the company's Asian and European lines this Spring.
