O2 Germany hast just stopped the sale and delivery of the Toshiba TG01 Windows Mobile Professional smartphone, the German carrier is offering exclusively in Germany. According to O2 Germany, a virus was found on some of the device's microSD cards which comes with the TG01 and carries the navigation software.
However, O2 Germany told us that the virus isn't a "Windows Mobile virus" at all (as you might have read on other sites) but just a regular Windows virus, which made it - for which reason ever - to the microSD card. While it's not yet clear which kind of damage the virus does, Toshiba and O2 engineers are evaluating it at the moment.

O2 Germany will contact affected customers and will offer a device replacement as well as . In any case, O2 Germany is now reviewing the current stock and expects that the TG01 will be back on sale next week; then without any viruses.

UPDATE: O2 Germany and Toshiba cleaned/virus-scanned the stock-devices; the Toshiba TG01 is back on sale since last Friday evening!

Cheers ~ Arne
