Toshiba e800 and e400 Pocket PC available in New Zealand
Toshiba has announced its new range of Pocket PCs with two new models available on the New Zealand market.

According to the specs both the Pocket PC e400 and e800 models incorporate voice command and text-to-speech functionality. Users can access appointments, contact information plus other functions through simple commands which will open applications without the need to use the stylus. The text-to-speech functionality also enables emails to be read aloud, offering users the benefits of hands-free, whilst driving.

The e800 model has the world’s first 4” screen, the largest currently on the market, whilst the e400 model features a 3.5” display area. The large screen on the e800 allows for a 480 x 640 resolution.

Toshiba has incorporated a 72 hour data protection facility as standard in the new range, so even in the event of a battery running flat data is as safe as possible. This data protection window extends to 180 hours of battery life when using the optional larger battery in the e800 model.

Steve Ford, New Zealand Country Manager for Toshiba ISD said, “Work is a function you perform, not a place that you go. Toshiba’s new range of Pocket PCs was designed to enable the mobile professional to make their travel time far more productive. The new ease-of-use features, plus the limited size and weight mean the e400 and e800 are perfect tools for professionals on the move. In personal use, the new range is an eye-catching and beneficial device for remaining in-touch and organised.”

Integrated Wi-Fi (802.11b) is available in the e800 model. This model also features Voice over IP (VoIP) capability (PocketGPhone) and Toshiba’s ConfigFree software for simple set up of single or multiple WiFi profiles. The e800 also comes in a Bluetooth model for connectivity to other Bluetooth devices such as mobile phones, computers and printers.

Both models use the Intel XScale CPU. The e800 uses the PXA263 @ 400MHz and comes with 32MB ROM, 128 MB RAM and 32MB NAND memory (Microsoft Window Mobile Software for Pocket PC 2003 Premium Edition), while the e400 uses the PXA261 @ 300MHz comes with 16MB ROM, 64MB RAM and 32MB NAND memory (Microsoft Windows Mobile Software for Pocket PC 2003 Professional Edition).

The current prices are:
  • e400 NZ$660 ex GST
  • e800 Bluetooth NZ$1270 ex GST
  • e800 WiFi NZ$1325 ex GST
