Toshiba unveils TG01 smartphone

Toshiba has just announced their very own smartphone with a wide screen display of 4.1 inches and a very thin form factor 9.9mm — the Toshiba TG01.

The Toshiba TG01 is not your ordinary smartphone. It’s the first one to have the Qualcomm SnapDragon platform running at a blazing-fast 1GHz processor {via}.

Toshiba TG01 Specs:

4.1 inches (480×800 pixels) full touch screen display
1.0 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon QSD2850
Wi-Fi 802.11b/g
Bluetooth 2.0
3.15 MP, 2048×1536 pixels
GPS/aGPS support
512MB internal, up to 32GB storage via microSD
Windows Mobile 6.1Â

The processor can dynamically throttle up or down depending on use so the phone conserves some much-needed juice to last longer. With the SnapDragon platform, Toshiba has not just introduced a phone but another mobile gaming and multimedia device.

The unit will be available by 2nd quarter of 2009 but there’s no pricing indicated.

    IMO, It’s really too long. Longer than the iPhone, but the 1.0 GHz processor is the big deal.

    Oooo looks nice. but i doubt if it has the pinch and flick feature for its touch screen.

  6. ohhhhh, this looks nice, I’ll be sure to test it out when it gets to this side of the country :)

    i wonder why they didnt wait to release it in Mobile World Congress Barcelona next week or for the newer WinMo 6.5 OS which reminds me, yuga, are you going?

    the only reason why I still have a WinMo platform phone is not the OS but the community. people are practically willing to custom bake ROMs for me to make my phone run faster.

  8. just wonderin how much will this phone cost…

    @iko – I’m going to Singapore for Nokia that week.

    What a sweet phone!
    Sleek, elegant and sophisticated.
    Another potential iPhone killer.
    If this will price below 30K(hopefully :D), this would be perfect.
