Toshiba TG01

Toshiba has launched its take on the touchscreen smartphone with the Windows Mobile 6.1 powered TG01.



The device features a large 4.1 display with wide VGA (800 x 480) resolution, besting the half VGA used on Apple’s iPhone and matching that of HTC’s Touch HD.



While this is ideal for viewing business documents on the move, Toshiba is promoting its suitability for watching movies on the commute to work, with display features such as Colour Matching, LCD Backlight Control, Colour Image Control and Dynamic Gamma

Correction. There’s also an SD card slot for storing said movies, with cards available up to 32GB.



The device is also super slim at only 9.9mm. Despite its svelte dimensions, Toshiba has packed a 1GHz processor inside the thin frame, based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon platform. Toshiba is touting its low power consumption through the use of ‘dynamic speed adaptation’.



Significantly, Toshiba said the phone will have full support for Adobe Flash, enabling many sites to be viewed that can’t be on Apple’s iPhone.



While there’s no multi-touch, there is a 3D one touch interface overlaid over Windows Mobile for navigation and users can move between applications by tilting the phone from left to right. Owners can also simply shake the phone to answer an incoming call and there will be one touch access to social networking sites such as Facebook. It’s naturally HSDPA capable and also has Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and both a-GPS and GPS.



The phone will be available this summer, but more details will emerge at the forthcoming Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
