CORPORATE PROFILE



Head Office Corporate Information


One of the worlds leading manufacturers of entertainment and medical equipment, from MRI machines to PDA's, Toshiba has established itself as a provider of reliable technological solutions. Originally established almost 125 years ago, the company has since expanded and now has offices across the globe. This Tokyo based company generates an annual income in the area of $54 billion dollars; in the year 2000 sported a repertoire of over 116,000 different products. It is this diversity in products mixed with strong customer relations that makes Toshiba the technology power horse that it is.


Canadian Corporate Information


Established around 1985, Toshiba's Canadian office has played an integral role in the company's annual revenue. In 2001, the company predicted that the annual profit that year was in the range of about $600 million dollars. The Canadian branch of this technology giant is based in Markham, Ontario, where it conducts research and development as well as product demonstrations, training sessions, and maintains a technical support area. A subsidiary of Toshiba Corporation, Tokyo, and the company maintains regional offices throughout Canada from Victoria to Halifax.

 

PRODUCT INTRODUCTION



In the past few years, the world has seen remarkable advances in the world of personal digital assistants or PDA's as they are referred to. The technology has become so advanced that it is now possible to purchase advanced versions of these PDA's known as Pocket PC's. These pocket PC's run at anywhere between 100 and 500 MHz. Microsoft took this as an opportunity to widen their horizons and now the Pocket PC's run on various versions of Windows CE. The little computers also feature onboard RAM, flash card readers and integrated wireless Ethernet cards. In essence they are like Nintendo Game boy's on steroids, as the user can also input games for pleasure. It is this mixture of the ability to organize one's schedule while engaging in a friendly game of Doom CE that has made these pocket PC's so popular. To add to their already crowded list of features, they double as MP3 players and will play movie files.


Seeing this as a way to broaden their customer base, Toshiba adopted the task of creating their own Pocket PC. Their first attempt came in the form of the Toshiba e330. Running at 300 MHz with 64MB of SDRAM, the product was a hit. Casio, Compaq, and Sony, now had a new competitor on their hands. Toshiba didn't stop there; they later released the Toshiba e740, a much faster, and more compatible new Pocket PC, that would surely keep up Toshiba's good name.
