Compare TG01 Deals

The Toshiba TG01 in dramatic black has one of the large touchscreen interfaces available and can make a good claim to be the fastest, thinnest and largest mobile in the industry. Fastest: the Qualcomm Snapdragon 1 GHz processor; among the thinnest at under one centimetre - and the screen is the largest ever seen on a 3G phone: a huge 4.1-inch beast which, with the border becomes part of a pretty big device - a 129 x 70 x 9.9 mm chassis weighing 129g.

But Toshiba know a thing or two about screen technology and using both a variable backlight - to enhance the look of dark scenes in film of shows - and dynamic gamma correction to reduce colour stepping, the result is the sharpest picture imaginable and a huge step forward on a mobile device.

The TGO1’s chosen operating system is Windows Mobile 6.5 with a wide range of Windows features, but many experts reckon Android would have been a better bet for a touchscreen phone. However, Web browsing is fast thanks to HSDPA and EDGE, along with Wifi wireless and short-range Bluetooth wireless data transfer options. Messaging options range from SMS, through MMS to instant messaging and push email.

There is a 3.2 megapixelcamera with autofocus, a music player supporting all popular file fomats, A-GPS and host of accessories including Pocket Office, Outlook Mobile and a photo editor – oh, and you can answer and reject calls by simply shaking the handset.

The TG01 comes with an 8GB microSD memory card and the slot supports capacities up to 32GB. Battery life is rated up to four hours’ 3G talk time; eight (GSM) and 220 hours on standby from a full charge.
