The handset is capable of playing music while users surf the net or perform other functions which means they can enjoy the complete functionality of the phone, without compromise.

“The Toshiba 803 gives users their music player and mobile phone in one device,” said Nick Tanigawa, General Manager of Toshiba’s Mobile Communications Division. “Our aim has been to create a product that works as well as a music device as it does as a mobile phone.”

The slick, clamshell handset also features a 2.2 megapixel camera, stereo twin speakers and BluetoothTM. It has a standby time of up to 270 hours and talk time of up to 320 minutes*.

The Toshiba 803 builds on the recent launch of Toshiba’s TS 921, its first ever 3G mobile phone for Europe, and the TS 10 2.5G fashion phone.

The Toshiba 803 is exclusively available on the Vodafone network.
