Toshiba has set out to ignite the handheld market with its new Pocket PC e310, which it has labelled the “Palm Killer”.
Selling at around $1199 in New Zealand, and weighing only 140 grams, the e310 manages to rustle up plenty of processing power, thanks to Intel’s 206MHz processor and Microsoft’s Pocket PC 2002 operating system. Onboard memory is 32Mb.
As for functionality, Toshiba’s e310 comes with Pocket Word, Excel, Outlook, Internet Explorer and MSN Messenger. USB cradle or wireless synchronisation makes it easy to keep the Pocket PC’s data up to date with work or personal files.
There’s no loss of data when the battery goes flat either, and the device is said to deliver up to 15 days usage between charges. Constant use battery life offers up to 10 hours of uninterrupted up time.
