Great review, after reading bad reviews of the Toshiba G900 the Kaiser is back on my most wanted list.

Great review...can't wait to get my hands on one of these. Had one question though. In your review you write:

"Below the speaker sits the 2.8" screen, which is bevelled into the device slightly in order to provide it with a degree of protection. This also denotes that the Kaiser will not be a 'Touch' equipped device, as such devices have a flush screen covered with reinforced plastic."

What do you mean when you say it will not be a 'Touch' equipped device? It comes with a stylus so I'm a bit confused. Sorry if my first post is a stupid one.

it will not have the same touch screen the HTC touch did. it does have a normal touch screen though.

The phrase should be "it's not a TouchFlo" device. TouchFlo is HTC's 'revolutionary' gui (http://www.europe.ht...s/htctouch.html)

Great review Paul... I don't know what we'd do if you didn't get all these cool brand spanking new devices before everyone else :) heh

Don't know if you can answer this one but will the modaco shop be selling Kaisers? In network branded mode? or will there be a HTC sim free version?

Cheers

Ben

Thanks mikeeey and webreaper. Can't wait to toss my near death Treo 650 and pick up a 4550. I hope it's not too much longer now.

So...

Toshiba Portege G900 vs. HTC Kaiser

That's the dilemna I'm having now. What do you guys reckon?


I think the G900 will be a lot more expensive, but that's just a guess at this point, based on early pricing of G900's in the UK. No word yet on Kaiser pricing, but I expect it will be less.

I can assure you the Kaiser will be more than £400 hence making it more expensive than the G900.

Took some screen shots of the new rom in action. I haven't got much time on my hands at the moment so this little update should keep you happy till Paul goes into all the detail.
It is getting very much touch user friendly. For a lot of the tasks I just use my finger saves getting out the stylus. I never really use screen protectors but I may start lol.
There is a nice Weather today plugin also. I must say big improvement over the last rom.

Yes, I should have said TouchFLO and made it more clear.

AFAIK the new ROM only adds aspects of the HTC Touch UI rather than the TouchFlo finger interface, but i'll let you know when I've applied the latest ROM (36% done as we speak) :)

Ok, I've seen an unboxing video of the G900 (it was on engadget/gizmodo can't remember which, courtesy of tracyandmatt.co.uk

The screen is the ONLY lure of the G900 but considering the device is pretty large compared to the Kaiser, I think I will just go for the Kaiser. The built in GPS will also be a nice bonus.

Vario III

What do you lot think?
I for one will be staying with the black :-)
The rom looks identical to the one on one of my Kaisers.

I agree the black looks better. It's a pity T-mobile are sticking with the Silver. :)

Thanks for posting the link btw.

They was bound to keep it in line with the current Varios :-) But as you can see, it is on the way.

That PDF suggets it will be coming soon to tmobile.

Thing is, I agree that the black looks much better. I might get it offline again in its HTC Kaiser guise. But I may wait a couple of months as I had laods of problems with the first two TyTN's I had. Alternatively to save hassle nad heartache, I may just get the T-Mobile version when it gets released.
