Toshiba Protege' G900 SmartPhone vs iPhone
Are you still trying to talk yourself out of buying that cool new iPhone? I understand - I have been talking to myself too.
The iPhone appeals to everyone with its look, feel, and entertainment value. You cannot look at the iPhone without yearning for one of your very own. That's not even considering the impact of holding it in your hands.
There is a lot of talk about whether other cell phones both new and not so new have the ability to kill the iPhone. That is a hard question to answer because the iPhone is so unique. It has many of the "must have" features of popular Smart/PDA cell phones plus some.
If the look is what you are after the iPhone is hard to beat. If ease of use is what you are after the iPhone is hard to beat. Compatible email accounts are almost unlimited. Current contacts and calendar can be synced through iTunes.
But, you still need to remember that there are other cell phones on the market that have similar features, and all you sacrifice is the energy used to push a few buttons to access them.
Some cell phones work on 3G networks and the iPhone does not. Some cell phones have numerous 3rd party applications available and the iPhone has limited applications available. Some cell phones similar to the iPhone sell for a few hundred dollars or less with a 2 year contract and the iPhone sells for $499.00 (4GB) and & $599.00 (8GB) with a two year contract.
The Toshiba Protégé' G900 is one cell phone that may compete pretty well. One of it outstanding features is the biometric reader. Why is that so important? This cell phone could possibly act as a fill in for your laptop. Especially since the Protégé' G900 is one of the earliest cell phones to be equipped with Windows Mobile 6. If you use the features of Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint to their potential, it is a good idea to be able to lock prying eyes out.

Features of the Protégé G900 are impressive so before making your final decision check them out. Price wise, at least for now, it is comparable with the iPhone. But, unlike the iPhone it will eventually be sold through several outlets which will eventually lower the price. The iPhone may not since it will probably be held tight by Apple and AT&T.
Personally, other than the Mobile 6 feature I would still have a difficult time choosing between the iPhone and the Protégé G900.
