Toshiba unveils TG02 and K01 mobile phonesTwo new Windows Phones shown off at MWC 2010
15 February 2010
Toshiba has unveiled the Toshiba TG02 and the Toshiba K01 mobile phone handsets at the 2010 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
The Toshiba TG02 is the successor to the Toshiba TG01 mobile phone. You can find out more about the .
Like the TG01, the TG02 has a huge 4.1-inch 480x800 pixel screen. Toshiba has, however, managed to slim down the handset slightly and shave off around 35g from its bodyweight.
The TG02 also features a capacitive touchscreen rather than the cheaper and more basic resistive touchscreen found on the TG01.
The touchscreen interface should be slicker on the TG02, not just because of the improved touchscreen, but also because the TG02 runs the Windows 6.5.3 operating system, rather than the Windows 6.5 operating system.
The Toshiba K01 has many of the same specifications as the TG02, but it also features a slide out Qwerty keyboard. This makes it easier to type long emails, but it does add a little extra weight and bulk.
Another difference between the TG02 and the K01 is that the K01 has an OLED (organic light emitting diode) screen. This should provide an improved contrast and, as it’s a more energy efficient display, a longer battery life.
Both mobile phones feature a 1GHz processor, so applications should run smoothly.
