Toshiba Sportio Handset

SportioKDDi Corporation has unveiled a new mobile phone for the summer hoping that many will subscribe to their au Smart Sports Run and Walk service. Toshiba’s Sportio, a handset that features an acceleration sensor and GPS, keeps track of how many steps you take, how far you have gone, and how many calories you used up in its Calorie Counter mode. Place it in Beat Run mode and you can compose music by jogging to special tracks. The phone features a 2.2-inch TFT (240 x 320), a 2 Megapixel camera, and a 1 Seg Tuner. Available in orange or red, the Sportio is also Bluetooth capable so you can take it with you wherever you trot.

Yet another great gadget gadget from toshiba, I liked its design well especially its screen size, but does it have a normal screen or color screen, if it doesn’t have a color screen, it might be a disadvantage.

This looks like a great mobile phone for athletes to have.  I would rather go with the iPhone because it can definitely do what this phone can do and it has a lot more applications that can be created for it through the SDK kit.  Unlike the Toshiba Sportio, the iPhone is more customizeable, is touchscreen, and has WiFi.  It’s also 3G now and has a GPS system too.  I didn’t like the shape of the buttons on the Tosiba Sportio, and I also thought they looked small in the screenshots.  I did like the fact that the Toshiba Sportio offered five different colors:  orange, white, black, red, and green, while the iPhone just has two colors—Black and white.  This mobile phone also weighs a little less than the iPhone.  If it’s price is less than the iPhone then it’s a good mobile phone to get.
