The TG01 comes with more than just one superlative as its claim to fame. In addition to the largest display, the 1 GHz processor used also makes it the most powerful of all the Smartphones currently on the market. It integrates GPS and 3G connectivity on a single chip and provides for the particularly powerful, efficient delivery of multimedia contents. In the development of the display, Toshiba took advantage of the company's previous experience in the LCD-TV segment to equip the cell phone to serve up super-sharp images with brilliant colors.
"The Toshiba TG01 was one of the highlights at the Mobile World Congress and is currently the most interesting new Smartphone on the market," comments Lutz Schüler, Managing Director Marketing & Sales at Telefónica O2 Germany. "Starting in the summer, we will be offering our customers a cell phone that combines multimedia capability and office functionalities perfectly with powerful performance and high efficiency. Its easy operation and the design make the TG01 one of the highlights in our product program."
User guidance using gesture operations
Toshiba has completely redesigned the user interface of the cell phone based on Windows Mobile. Among other things, the TG01 also features gesture operations, i.e. incoming calls can be answered by simply giving the device a quick shake or the user can navigate between opened applications by tilting the TG01 to the right or the left. All of the operations can be controlled using just one hand.
"The TG01 is quite simply the next step in cutting edge mobile technology that will enable us to deliver mobile content for O2 customers at unprecedented levels of speed and quality. We are delighted to be partnering with O2 to launch the exciting new TG01 handset into the German market," says Bernard Labaume, Vice President Business Development & Trade Marketing, Toshiba Mobile Communications Division, Europe.
Starting in the summer, the TG01 will be available at O2 in white.
