Toshiba Portégé G500

 

Toshiba's first Windows Mobile Smartphone sports a fingerprint reader. Is it enough to impress Sandra?

A shortcut key on the right edge activates the lens and then shoots a still or video. Images are captured at resolutions up to 2-megapixels (1,600 x 1,200), video at 144 x 176 and 240 x 320.

Audio quality during calls ; Chunky design

If the G500 doesn't do it for you, similar devices worth considering are the Motorola Q 9 for its HSDPA connectivity and full, easy-to-use keypad, and the BlackBerry Pearl, which is a slim, email-ready handset that has a nifty trackball
