Toshiba is after more of the pocket personal computer (PC) market--as distinct from mere personal digital assistants (PDAs) with two powerful little gadgets, the e750 and e350. Both are powered by Intel's new PXA255 Applications Processor, meaning they will run 40 percent faster than their peers. The PXA255 processor has increased performance levels in all areas of operation including application launching, MPEG decoding and Web browsing. The two pocket PCs run Microsoft's Pocket PC 2002 operating system with an on-board wireless local area network (LAN). They have cutting-edge graphics, audio and video technology and a screen size of 3.8", suiting the TFf colour display to multimedia functions. In addition to the 32MB Flash ROM and 64MB RAM, the e750 has a 32MB NAND Flash Memory offering additional data reliability. The e750 is totally expandable with both Secure Digital and CompactFlash slots. Plus, through the optional expansion pack, users can connect to a projector for presentations while meeting with customers, to a keyboard while in the office or to an external monitor for easy viewing. An optional extra is a high-capacity, Lithium-ion battery pack for one's more intensive work on multimedia applications or listening to MP3 files.
