MWC 2010 – Toshiba TG02 and K01 phones land
As mentioned briefly on the Mobile World Congress live blog, Toshiba has pulled out two new handsets – the TG02 and K01.
This time last year, Tosh announced its entry into the mainstream smartphone space with the TG01], a WinMo-toting touchscreen that looked the part, but failed to press the right buttons owing to an unresponsive resistive screen.
That’s been fixed in the TG02, which still has 4.1in of screen real estate, but backs it up with full capacitive touch action and a fresh WinMo 6.5 UI skin running on 1GHz guts inside that trim sub-10mm body.
While that’s aimed at movie buffs and webheads, the K01 (pictured) lets your fingers do the walking on its slide-out QWERTY keyboard while you ogle its 4.1in OLED capacitive touchscreen.
That screen tech should translate into vivid colours, deep blacks and longer battery life, too, but we’ll reserve our judgement for a review nearer the release time.
No word yet on that date or prices. You’ll know when we do.
