UPDATE: We’ve just posted our hands-on photos of the Toshiba TG01. Have a gawp to see what all the fuss is about!
The Toshiba TG01 took us by surprise this morning. We’d been invited to witness a “mobile revolution” and Toshiba didn’t disappoint. The TG01 is a touchscreen Windows Mobile phone with more display space, a higher resolution, faster processor and slimmer shell than any other smartphone, including Apple’s.
Unveiled by Med Jeewoth, Toshiba’s country manager for UK and Ireland, the company’s claiming it has “listened to what users want – great speed, and the interaction of a touchscreen, but more importantly you want it to look really slick, very slim and very sexy.”
And the specs don’t disappoint. Inside there’s a whopping 1Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, while up front a 4.1 inch touchscreen with W-VGA resolution pumps out visuals that’re absolutely gorgeous.
Windows Mobile 6.1 is humming away inside, but Toshiba has re-skinned it to create a neater interface. We’re talking settings screens that won’t give you a headache, a homescreen that can be completely customised and neat extras, like gesture commands and “shake to answer, shake to hang up” for controlling calls with a flick of the wrist.
Inside there’s also GPS, HSDPA and HSUPA, DivX support and Internet Explorer Mobile 6, including with full Flash compatibility.
We’re chopping up our hands-on photos now. So check back shortly for a closer look.
