The G910 is a side-opening clamshell smartphone with a form-factor similar to the one of Nokia E90 Communicator. The difference is that, most likely, in order to be used the new Toshiba has to be opened, since it lacks a standard keypad and display on its front panel. The G910 runs on Windows Mobile 6 Professional and has a large QWERTY keyboard. There also is a 2-megapixel camera, a VGA one for video calling and a WVGA (480x800) 3” display. The phone disposes of a built-in GPS and supports 2100 HSDPA, 900/1800/1900 GSM/EDGE and GPRS class 10.

The screen is a resistive touch, and a stylus is required in order to operate it. The brightness is good, the colours are nice, and the operating systems is fairly responsive. The thing is packed with all the usual Windows CE/Mobile nice features, including bangers like Solitaire, Bubble Breaker, Windows Media Player, but also boring things like Word, Excel and Powerpoint, Email, and Internet Explorer Ugh. It’s fun to play with a bit, but it’s pretty useless in the Internet 69.0 or whatever we’re having now. No, it won’t fucking run TikTok, and that’s a plus. Another plus is that this is a pretty rare phone, so whip it on the table and let everyone wonder “whoaaa, what kind of iPhone is that?

The phone is pretty well built, but unfortunately on my unit, the plastic cover of the touchscreen got pretty scratched from the bumps on the keys. I tried cleaning it, but they’re scratches. Maybe a quick polish can remove them, but I’m not very optimistic about it.

I played a bit with the 2 mp camera, it does decent pictures in daylight, but go inside and it turns into a potato. Not impressed, digital cameras back in the day were way better.

How to take screenshots on a Windows Mobile 6 Phone

Because this is my first Windows Mobile device, I wanted to play a bit more with it and also take some screenshots. Apparently there’s no easy way of doing this, so I had to install a program under a Windows 7 virtual machine. It took me about an hour of googling and testing various stuff, so here’s a method that works ON WINDOWS 7. I didn’t try on other versions, try at own risk:

  1. Go to and download HauteCapture 2.1.1. If the site is down, you can find a mirror of the file in the Downloads section below.
  2. Install Windows Mobile Device Center (the new version of the defunct ActiveSync). For 32-bit systems use drvupdate-x86.exe, for 64-bit systems use drvupdate-amd64.exe. You can find them both on the Honeywell site, but I’ve also added them to the downloads section.
  3. Connect your device to the computer and wait for drivers to be automagically installed.
  4. Open HauteCapture.
  5. Enjoy!! Actually, not yet. Because the trial version adds a watermark in the middle of the screenshots, and because I’m using this for a personal not-for-profit blog, I’m not going to pay 45 euros for a licence for something I’ll use only once. So I’d like to thank user Barbos2007 who posted a serial that works. But, seriously, if you’re going to use it for more than a few screenshots, or professionally, buy it, the thing actually works very well!
