For several months now, Brighthand has been reported that Toshiba will be exiting the U.S. handheld market later this year, although Toshiba denies this. Well, it appears that it plans to release one more Pocket PC before departing.

According to documents filed with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), two versions of the upcoming device, called the Toshiba e830 Pocket PC, will be announced on or about September 15.

Both versions will sport 4-inch VGA displays, 128 megabytes of memory, dual expansion slots (Secure Digital (SD) and CompactFlash), a 520 megahertz Intel PXA270 processor, and run Windows Mobile for Pocket PC, Second Edition. However, one version will have Bluetooth and WiFi wireless capabilities while the other will have Bluetooth but lack WiFi.

Toshiba e805 While there are no pictures of the e830 currently available, it will likely resemble the Toshiba e805 Pocket PC (pictured at right).

Toshiba has refused to comment on upcoming models but has denied it is abandoning the U.S. handheld market.
