Earlier this week, Toshiba Europe held a press event in the U.K. where the Japanese electronics company unveiled its latest Windows Mobile Professional smartphone, the Toshiba TG01.
Running on Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional (which hopefully gets an upgrade to Windows Mobile 6.5 at time of its release) the TG01 is the first Windows Mobile smartphone which runs on Qualcomm's new Snapdragon platform at a speed of 1.0 GHz. The TG01 is said to feature GSM/GPRS/EDGE as well as UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA, Bluetooth 2.0, WiFi and aGPS. The 4.1" touchscreen supports a WVGA resolution at 800 x 480 pixel while the device is 9.9 mm thick only. The inbuilt 512 MB ROM, which holds photos from the 3.2 megapixel autofocus camera can be expanded by microSD cards:

Neither a price nor a release date was given yet but Toshiba will unveil further information during this month's  Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

UPDATE: According to the Global Certification Forum (GFC), the Toshiba TG01 will feature quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE but singleband UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA at 2100 MHz only. While the singleband WCDMA support is sufficient for Europe and Asia, it would mean that the TG01 will not make its way to North America; at least not in the current configuration.
