ideal work life balance.

The G910’s sleek, sophisticated clamshell design and full QWERTY
keyboard gives it the look and feel of a mini laptop. Furthermore, the
Portegé G910 provides the ultimate in security with a biometric
fingerprint reader allowing only the user to unlock and access all the
content on their device – ideal for ensuring this doesn’t end up in the
wrong hands.

built-in GPS function has added benefits to the user by mapping out
location and directions from A to B in seconds, perfect for the busy
business traveller trying to find their way in a city or new
town/country. By supporting Qualcomm’s gpsOneXTRA Assistance™
technology, the G910 provides a faster ‘first fix’ with greater GPS
sensitivity indoors and in challenging dense urban environments.

The G910’s unique 3” wide-VGA touch screen display also ensures the
user sees more information with less scrolling and provides them with a
resolution that is five times better than a standard QVGA display.
Working on Microsoft Office documents can become a reality at last,
plus the Opera browser on board help bring the perfect web 2.0

The G910 also provides all of the key functions you’d expect including
a 2 mega-pixel camera perfect for ‘capturing the moment’ and a second
camera for video telephony, high connectivity from WiFi to HSDPA as
well as support for the micro SD card.

Says Takashi Okamoto, Deputy Managing Director, Toshiba Information
Systems (UK) Ltd: “Built on our 20 year heritage in mobile computing
and excellent partnership with Microsoft, the Portégé G910 is an
essential device for the modern business user. It is one of the most
powerful smart mobile devices in the current market, but uniquely has
all the features and applications needed for the user to be highly
connected in both their professional and private lives. As we move
towards increasing mobile working, companies and professionals are
looking for devices that will service them with a highly efficient and
secure communications tool and the Portégé G910 is the solution that
will fill that need in the market, whilst also helping them achieve
that ideal work life balance.”

Toshiba will also launch a G920 version of the device which supports
A-GPS for those network operators offering this service.
