As expected last week, Toshiba’s Digital Products Division (DPD) announced the availability of the thin-and-light value-priced Pocket PC e400/405 and corporate-based Pocket PC e800/805 Series PDAs featuring integrated Wi-Fi (802.11b) connectivity and voice over IP (VoIP) capabilities. The devices feature audio playback ability of text documents and user voice command functionality.

The Pocket PC e400/405 and e800/805 Series include software designed to quickly access a user’s appointments, contact information or time and date with the sound of the user’s voice. Voice commands instantly open the applications without having to use the stylus. Customers can also take advantage of the text-to-speech application, which delivers audio feedback of e-mail messages, schedule and other text documents, personalizing the PDA experience. A built-in world clock is included for easy access to local time zones.

With the built-in Toshiba VoIP phone software (e800/805 Series only), users can place phone calls over a high-speed wireless LAN network worldwide, reducing the cost of making long distance and international calls via traditional phone systems. The Pocket PC e800/805 Series also features integrated Wi-Fi (802.11b) connectivity for convenient Internet access at a Toshiba SurfHere public wireless hotspot or any other public hotspot, or to a user's corporate wireless network.

The Pocket PC e400/405 and e800/805 Series feature enhanced screen brightness to easily read data content or view photos. The Pocket PC e800/805 Series features a 4.0" diagonal transreflective display for greater viewing area and includes VGA 480x 640 resolution support, as we told you earlier.

Pocket PC e800/805 Series features the optional Toshiba Presentation Pack that allows users to conduct a presentation directly from the PDA. Priced at $995, the Picture View Presentation Pack includes an RGB port to connect to a monitor or projector and a USB port for devices such as a full-size keyboard or numeric keypad.

Toshiba's Pocket PC e800/e805 series might be the most advanced PDA available in the market, but the company did not integrated Bluetooth controller, a very practically useful feature for the most PDAs.
