Toshiba debuts Microsoft-based Pocket PC e310

LONDON -- Toshiba Corp. unveiled its Pocket PC e310, a personal digital assistant (PDA) using Microsoft Corp.'s Pocket PC 2002 software, at the Microsoft Mobility Developer Conference here on Wednesday.

"This is a worldwide release with the handheld being available beginning today, depending on language availability in the software," said Toshiba spokesman Manuel Linnig. He said it was available in localized versions, including English, French and Spanish.

The street price of the PDA is $441, including value-added tax, Linnig said.

The Pocket PC e310 contains a 206-MHz Intel Corp. StrongArm processor and has a Secure Digital expansion slot that can be used to increase memory from 32MB to 288MB or to add cable-free connectivity with an SD Bluetooth card, Linnig said.

The Pocket PC e310 is aimed at the consumer market, a change of pace for the Tokyo-based company, which released the more enterprise-oriented Pocket PC e570 earlier in the year. That product has 64MB of built-in memory, two expansion slots and a list price of $569.
