Engadget’s 3GSM coverage is forcing me to consider whether I’m truly happy with my Samsung BlackJack (RIM fanboy I am not!).  After 3 months of ownership I can honestly say I am extremely pleased with it on many fronts:  form factor, WM5 smartphone OS (over PocketPC and never thought I’d say that); HSDPA, A2DP, etc. 

I recently purchased a Samsung 10 megapixel digital camera, the NV10, and it too is gorgeous and has tremendous build quality and functionality.  (review coming soon)

I have also been building up to my virgin HDTV purchase and the Samsung offerings are looking very atttractive to me for the same reasons as stated above.  But then I laid eyes on these shots and specs of the forthcoming Toshiba Portege G900 pdaphone.  The live pictures from Mobileburn look even more attractive than the press shots Engadget and other sites had previously posted.  The only “but” about this device is the 300mhz processor jkontherun is reporting it has.  Surely they had to do this to prevent battery life from being any worse than it’s surely going to be with a 480×800 screen resolution and a HSDPA radio embedded, but we’ll see if maybe some “execute in place” memory overcomes this the way Palm has done with the WM Treos. 

Getting back to my HDTV quest, I found an affordable 32 inch Toshiba LCD TV (768p) at hhgregg recently that has swayed me from the more expensive Samsung equivalent for now, and the fact that I already own an extremely capable Toshiba DVR is also influencing my lean. 

Oh, and did I mention I’m also on a mission to replace my Toshiba Portege 3505 Tablet PC with maybe a Samsung Q1B UMPC……
