Toshiba shows off Sportio phone

Toshiba’s Sportio combines chatting and sports training.

As well as being able to ring your friends on it, the Sportio features an acceleration sensor and GPS, so can keep track of how many steps you take, how far you have gone, and how many calories you have burned up using its Calorie Counter mode.

Put it in Beat Run mode and you can compose music by jogging to special tracks.

The phone features a 2.2-inch TFT (240 x 320), a 2-megapixel camera, and a 1 Seg Tuner.

It is available in orange or red, and is also Bluetooth capable.
