SPB and Toshiba - Friends?


Spb Software, one of my favorites Windows Mobile applications vendor, is partnering with Toshiba, to deliver the ultimate mobile device experience through the recently launched Toshiba Portege G810.

As I recently posted, SPB Mobile Shell will become part of the Portege built in applications.

What I now know is that additional apps from SPB will be available as well.

"We designed the Portege G810 as a stylish touch screen Windows Mobile phone, ideal for both mobile-working and socializing, as it combines a powerful operating system with an incredibly user-friendly interface," says Bertrand Issard, Head of Product Planning & Strategy, Toshiba Information Systems (UK) Ltd. "We turned to Spb Software, with their extensive Windows Mobile software and usability expertise, to support us in creating a highly intuitive user interface for our Portege G810," he concludes. "Microsoft is committed to support a vibrant partner ecosystem and always delivers opportunities to create solutions that meet a wide range of Windows Mobile customers' needs," comments Fabio Falzea, acting as Mobile Communications Business Lead, Microsoft Central & Eastern Europe Area. "The Toshiba - Spb synergy is one good example of the rich benefits the Microsoft ecosystem secures to the market, where partners are able to complement each other's strengths and deliver new innovative and rich experiences on Windows Mobile platform".

The included features will be: SPB Mobile Shell, Spb Full Screen Keyboard, Spb Pocket Plus, and other Windows Mobile customization enhancements.
