Toshiba Journe Touch multimedia device
One look at the Toshiba Journe Touch and chances are you would lust after it, even though you know that you don’t really have any use for the Journe Touch in a practical manner any time soon. The Journe Touch is, in essence, a Mobile Internet Device that features a multimedia touchscreen for easy navigation of its software and programs within, and with 7″ of viewing (and touching) real estate, you won’t go blind anytime soon while viewing the icons and text within. Powered by an advanced version of Windows CE 6.0, the Journe touch targets consumers who want to have access to multimedia content and social networking platforms at their fingertips – sounds pretty much like an iPhone to us, but the bright side is, this is much larger than Apple’s smartphone and probably packs more of a punch.
The Journe Touch is able to handle the playback of a wide variety of file formats that rely on the Windows Multimedia Player 9.0 software client. Heck, Toshiba has even thrown in an Internet Explorer that is two generations old – we’re talking about Internet Explorer 6 here for a mobile Internet browsing experience that is somewhat on par with that of a PC. The 7″ TFT touchscreen display comes with LED backlight and a resolution of 800 x 480, boasting 16:9 aspect ratio to make all your movie playback sessions look delicious without those irritating black lines on either side of the display, while carrying a contrast ratio of 300:1 for true to life colors and all-round excellent quality.
It supports a wide range of social networks and community-based websites including YouTube, Acetrax, Picasa, Flickr, MSN Messenger and others. You can also use the Journe Touch to sift through RSS feeds in order to stay on top of things at all times. Other features include Wi-Fi connectivity, an SDHC memory card slot, 1GB of internal flash memory, support for a wide range of audio and video formats, HDMI output and USB connectivity. No idea on pricing details just yet though, but would all the mentioned specifications make you rush out and purchase one for yourself?
