Not sure whether you should buy an iPhone? Just in time for the launch of Apple’s first cellphone, Toshiba announced to be offering its Portege G900 beginning in July.

The smartphone will only be sold in Europe initially and can be purchased through the distributor Dangaard Telecom. The slider phone, which sports a 3” screen as well as a keyboard and comes with Wi-Fi as well as wireless broadband (HSDPA) connectivity is offered for 600 Euro (about $810).

The G900 is expected to arrive in the U.S. later this year and will likely carry a price of $600.
