Toshiba Launches A Pair Of Snapdragon Handsets

"Disappointed by the bad sales performance of its first Snapdragon powered Windows Phone the TG01, Toshiba decided to kick of this 2010 MWC with a shiny new TG02. Like most handset nowadays our TG02 features a capacitive screen with a 4.1" size and the usual VGA resolution and the same old 1GHz snapdragon. Running Windows 6.5 the TG02 also features a new fancy 3D Menu desperately trying to catch up with HTC UI...Now if you prefer devices with a full QWERTY keyboard, well you are in luck and behold the Toshiba K01. Beside its new OLED screen and keyboard, specs of the K01 are in fact pretty much similar to the TG02."

There's been a slew of new devices introduced at this year's Mobile World Congress, but most have been overshadowed by the Windows Phone 7 Series launch. Almost lost in the shuffle are Toshiba's gorgeous updates of last year's ground-breaking, but ultimately less than successful TG01. The TG02 (slate) and K01 (which includes a hardware QWERTY keyboard) are almost identical to the TG01, but make up for one of its most glaring omissions - both feature 4.1" capacitive screens, and the K01's screen is OLED to boot. Toshiba's proprietary panel UI also seems to have been dropped in favor of the latest version of SPB's Mobile Shell (good move if you ask me). Check out the link for the press release or drop by on Engadget's hands-on video and photo gallery. You might not see these in North America (the TG01 never made it), but you never know.

New Toshiba Models Nearing Production

We first heard about these way back in April, and it's nice to see Toshiba hard at work in bringing them to market. The K01 is landscape slider phone, with a 4.1" capacitive screen, the K02 is the clamshell pictured above with one 3.5" resistive LCD and a sub-LCD display (whatever that is), and the L01 will be a 7" monster with an optional keyboard (according to the original roadmap) - all running WM6.5. If Toshiba keeps to its original deadlines, we're probably looking at late this year/early next year for the launch. We still haven't seen the other two models mentioned, which come under the TG line - TG02 which will be waterproof, and TG03 which will be more multimeida oriented. Stay tuned!

Toshiba 2009-2010 Roadmap Leaked

"Yet released Toshiba TG01 and proprietary information in accordance with the Techblog, the Toshiba is expected to present two models of the TG series in 2009. The reason for Toshiba TG02 and Toshiba TG03 with touch screen 4.1-inch WVGA and analysis processor 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon QSD8 × 50. The TG02 has a 3,2 Megapixel camera and is waterproof (!), While the TG03 has 5 Megapixel camera and 5.1-channel sound."

The only thing I can say is...wow. I'm speechless. Apart from the L01 (which incidentally may run on a fuel-cell battery), all the others are the type of large screen, full featured devices that I've always envisaged as the perfect one for me. I'm further intrigued by the launch windows, which possibly intersects with that of WM7 - that makes the K01 MID doubly interesting with its capacitive screen. Kudos to Techblog for the scoop (translation here)!
