THE fastest & thinnest smart phone on the market.

Windows Mobile 6.5 is just round the corner (october) and it's pretty darn good!
Useful phone as a Satnav due to it's amazingly 'hugemongous' screen.

4.1 inch Full-Touchscreen WVGA 1GHz Processor Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional Accellerometer 10.2Mbps HSDPA (HSUPA) Fast Internet Wi-Fi (b/g) A-GPS Receiver 3.15MP Autofocus Camera microSD up to 32GB A2DP Bluetooth
(I believe it comes with an 8gb microSD card)

FREE orange broadband if available in your area!

Good for those of you that don't want the hassle of cashback!

Can also be purchased free at £20pm for 24month contracts.

If Apple are good at one thing other than extortionate profit margins, it's PR and Hype, and Toshiba and this device aren't even in the same sport as Apple let alone league.
#2
It's like anything really - the hardware is only as good as the software... nothing comes close to touching the iphone & all the itunes apps at the moment. Which isnt to say I wouldnt like it to because I feel sick at the prospect of spending £440 on a phone!
#3
Windows mobile actually has a LOT of good software...
It just doesn't get noticed because there isn't a convenient app store like the iPhone.
apps like FingerKeyboard2 and SPB Mobile Shell really enhance the UI of a winmo phone, but using a windows mobile phone just by itself is usually pretty awful, especially winmo 6.1

As soon as people release some cooked roms, this phone will be really awesome. I think that'll happen next month due to the windows mobile 6.5 update.

Iphone killer? Yeah if prodding something with a ripe banana is killing.
#5
Would suggest that all but the most limited of budgets would be better stretched to boost the inclusive talktime to 600minutes for equiv to additional £3.61 / month.
Surely this handset would best be used with an inclusive data package?
#6
18 month contract

200 cross-network mins + Unlimited texts • 18 months £ 24.47, presumably per month, didn't investigate further. £20 Automatic cashback.

Don't like 18 month contracts, but some do of course, and most prefer auto cashback to having to claim for it.

This isnt an Ipod killer...how can it be its got Windows Mobile installed.....For it to be a Ipod Killer. It would need the following...and excellent and simple user interface, it would need to connect to itunes....it would have to be cheap...and gaming would have to be impressive....does it meet this criteria !!!
#8
You can add your own data package if you want... it's about 5 pounds a month for evening & weekends and 7.50 for unltd anytime afaik.
#9
UI is what you make of it.. IMO winmo 6.5 & SPB mobile shell > iphone interface

Gaming:
Gran tourismo TG01

at this price point for the spec of this phone the iphone doesn't come anywher close. It's also pretty close to the Windows Mobile 7 spec that was leaked.

...free broadband...

I assume this is the free Orange home broadband offer and nothing to do with mobile or cellphone broadband, and if so it is only really suited to the lightest of internet users.
Still, maybe of use to those light users.

:?
I've not had any problems with tosh after sales service before. This is a very good phone, only downside being the small battery. Atleast it's removable.

+slimmer
+higher resolution screen
+faster processor
+larger screen
+removable battery
+removable storage
+normal microusb jack that supports usb host

winmo actually has quite catalogue of apps & no jailbreaking needed to run apps,
it doesn't have multi touch because it's a resistive screen, but i like resistive screens better because you can use your fingernail/stylus to touch and it's more accurate.

also seeing that orange & t-mobile are merging, i can't see why this is getting cold votes at this price.

They think this is a iphone killer lol jokers

if only :-P
#15
iPhone killer.......... lol.......... You need your head examining.
#16
What made me chuckle is the same arguments are used against PC's and Macs which is that PC's have a better spec (eg memory, processor etc).

They don't mention the fact that OSX runs perfectly on the standard spec and is much better to use that Windows.

Same with this - who cares if it has higher specs than an iphone? Is it as easy to use as an iphone with as many apps? Does it have GPS?

I've voted hot as it has a lot of good features for this price however you may have got more heat had you not tried to compare it to an IPhone

One of the things that counts against the iPhone (apart from cost and being stuck with o2 and being a bit nurdiy) is the stupid size, it's just too big and awkward.

So Toshiba have have made theirs even bigger? Fail.

Hear hear. I still use winmo and the main reason is the size of the phone. My ageing HTC Touch does everything I want it to, has expandable memor, replaceable battery and it fits in my shirt pocket!

I've always liked windows mobile smartphones, they were around before the Iphone & I think they have more to offer.

I remember friends being amazed that they could watch movies & play MP3s on their phones whilst I had been doing that + so much more on my smartphone for 12+ months.

I think it's funnier that people dislike it for the above reasons yet it sells so well - I suppose you think they were duped into buying them and now they cant' wait for their contracts to expire to get rid of them. I'm sorry but it's not like people are that gullible to believe what you class as 'hype'. Also the adverts are not exactly misleading, they just show someone using an iPhone.

They serve a purpose for the majority of consumers - just because it may not tick a certain box with yourself, does not make them crap.

Exactly, I don't get why people seem to be so picky about voting on mobile phone deals on hukd. I often read posts of people saying 'but it doesn't have xxx' and voting cold. If the deal isn't for you then you shouldn't really be voting. It's like someone voting cold on a deal of tampons because their body doesn't need them..

Also lots of people buy iPhones because it's an iPhone (aka brandname), not because it's a better phone than another phone.

I think the boy maddox says it best:

Misleading iPhone advert removed - advertising standards

(at least Wicked666 apologised)

I prefer their 12 month deal on Orange at £35 monthly with unlimited internet and paying just £29.99 for th phone... just got this for the wife and sold the phone for £310 on ebay (she has a jailbroken iphone) so over 12 months for about £10 a month she gets loads of minutes, texts and internet (plus broadband but we have Sky)...
BTW I agree definitely better tech wise than the iphone but as everyone knows it is the software that makes the iphone what it is.... not going to change anytime soon!

I dont get it. What does an iPhone do thats worthwhile, than this phone doesn't. (Apart of course not being able to say "oooh, look, I've got an iPhone everybody"!)


Is the correct answer!

Overpriced yes, well marketed yes, brilliant phone yes, if I ask any friends who have the same opinion as you to have a go of my phone and see for themselves I get the same answer, "not interested". You have an ignorant attitude towards the iphone and for what reason? Jealousy? No job and no money? Some people do have better things to spend there money on, if I hadn't got friends and family discount I wouldn't have been able to afford one but it doesn't stop the phone from being a superb piece of kit with the bonus of a superb service to go with it. I haven't paid for anything off itunes, theres so much for free plus ways of putting your own videos on for free. Get a life, or a job and sort yourself an iphone out!:whistling:

Thats briiliantly funny - I don't swallow the marketing hype of Apple, therefore I must have no job and/or no money. Sorry, can't be arsed with a p***ing contest, but suffice to say I am one of those lucky people with gainful employment, and that its sufficient to buy an Iphone, were I dumb enough to want one.

What's with the hype? I had a look one, loved it, got one, apple didn't make me want one, they just brought it to my attention and I made my own decision, that's what grown ups do.

Friends and Family? What's that then? I ask because the o2 associate discount scheme is called "o2 Open" and gives 6 discount opportunities per year of: 30% off voice tariffs excluding o2 25 and o2 50.

The problem is, it excludes the iPhone! "some handsets may be excluded- check instore before purchasing." it says on the little card wallet next to "1 discount available per store per visit".

I have an o2 open card and tried to use it for a friend (I wouldn't want an iPhone myself).

As for affordability, it's just like expensive cars, anyone can sign on the line and get credit.
#35
I get 30% off the £44 a month tariff, works out around £31 per month for the 16gb 3g model. 1200 mins and 500 txts and unlimited Internet. Not sure what the discount type is but my mate works at o2 call centre and gets 50% for him and 30% for any friends and family after that.

So many phones called the "iPhone killer"! Where do they all go? they get upgraded. How good are these phones?
The iPhone has stood the test of time.

And apps made for any iphone / ipod touch model can be used on any version.

Unlike other 'smart phones' where apps are only for a particular brand AND model

We shall see how successful this phone will be. If it's that good, it should sell in droves regardless of how good the marketing / advertising is. I'm still not sure what apple did to 'trick' people into buying their iphone as only ever seen a few tv adverts and yet it still sells out. I'm sure someone can enlighten me and also advise how they managed to 'conn' so many people into buying an iPhone. Perhaps they emplyed Derren Brown?

Or perhaps because you do not like it (for whatever reason), you believe that it's an inferior product so no one should like it and people are not buying it because they want to, but because they're are being made to (even though it's more expensive than most other phones on the market)

Nobody suggested people are made to purchase it, merely that those who fall for the marketing hype have all the intellect of a peanut butter sandwich. And judging from the video earlier in the thread, about the same personality too.

You're probably right - but all the apps keep them busy and away from 'normal' people
