Meet the new Portégé machines from Toshiba. No, not its latest endurance-tested laptops but a duo of Windows Mobile smartphones unveiled at 3GSM.First out will be the compact G500 in vertical slider guise. It packs both Wi-Fi, high speed HSDPA and, for those who really don't like waiting around for anything, it'll handle push email – Blackberry style.Shipping later but arriving loaded with the latest Windows Mobile 6.0 will be the G900 (pictured). A full-size PDA phone, it prefers to slide sideways to reveal its email-friendly QWERTY keyboard.Both get 2MP cameras and, for extra security, a fingerprint sensor that doubles as a touch sensitive nav-pad. We’ll be running our review fingers across both as soon as we can.In the meantime, why not don our Live Stuff nosebag?
