Earlier today the electronics retailer J&R was featuring a Toshiba e405 and Toshiba e805 devices in their PDA category.  Since that time the products have mysteriously disappeared from J& but we were able to grab the specs for the Toshiba e405 device.

Toshiba e405 specs

Intel Xscale PXA261 at 300MHz
Backlight Fluorescent Lamp
1 SDIO (Secure Digital) Card Slot
IrDa Infrared Port (115Kbps)
Built-in 980mAh Rechargeable Lithium-Ion Battery
Dimensions: 4.9″ x 3.0″ x 0.4″; weighs 5.1 oz.
Windows Mobile 2003 for Pocket PC

Toshiba e805 specs

  • Intel Xscale PXA263 at 300MHz
  • 128MB RAM, 32MB ROM & 32MB NAND Flash ROM
  • ATI Video Chipset V100
  • 1 SDIO (Secure Digital) Card Slot & CF ( CompactFlash ) Slot
  • IrDA Infrared Port (115Kbps)
  • No picture was available from J&R and there was no indication of Bluetooth or Wi-Fi.  The e405 was listed at $299.99 so unless Toshiba has refreshed their design I’m left yawning.  Since the e405 showed up on J&R today I would expect in the next week or two we’ll see more about this device and a specific release date.
