MWC 2010: Live Report
Last year, Toshiba showcased the TG01 and now, here comes its successor – the TG02 – and its “QWERTY version”, the K01. Not much has changed though, Toshiba still targets its Windows Mobile phones to the professionals, who want a huge screen (4.1” to be precise) and powerful hardware (1GHz Snapdragon).
Compare the specs, and you will see that the TG02 is very similar to the TG01. It is slightly shorter and narrower though, and so is slightly more pocket friendly. Features are almost the same, but its screen is capacitive instead of resistive and it runs on Windows Mobile 6.5.3 with SPB Shell. This is a nice interface personalization and it is a great improvement when compared to the interface we found on the TG01.
The K01 is very similar to the TG01. The difference is that it packs a 4-row horizontally sliding QWERTY keyboard and its interface will be slightly different. We were not able to check it out, but Toshiba told us that it will be based on the SPB Shell but personalized, in order to reflect what the manufacturer thinks is more user friendly.

WTF.... How do you go to talking about Samsung Wave which is a BADA OS phone on a Windows Article???? I just watched two vidoes on this OS and it is amazing..... Can't wait for this to come out later this year.... Might be switching from my Droid back to WinMo

Broken, It isn't fair to yell at galen. This string of updates is numbered 1-7 so far and WinMo7 is the last, as of right now. So if you want to post on any of the previous pages, it shows up here under 7. I am sure the next update on page 8, will have people confused as to why yuo are talking aboutt a WinMo7 series topic for something else... That being said. I am excited for the WM7 series to be released. I have been waiting (as elig to upgrade by extending my contract) since february of last year(2009). I am pretty sure VZW hates me for not being under contract. But I want a "worth it to me" upgrade. This would be worth it. I am sad it won'y come out until november of this year, as my phone is on its last leg. I want a WinMo phone with a snapdragon, tegra, and 512 ram.... HD2 or TG02

Nice point on that. Not something I noticed. Phone Arena must fix this :-)

Oh and btw, a buddy of mine who works for MS, said it should be out sometime in September to compete with anything Apple or Google puts out. So I'll be exicted to see what is going to happen. :-)

competition is good for everyone. it took this long for MS to wake up and quit trying to pawn the same 1990's crap on us. maybe this will be a new life for MS. Im going to be cautious. Sticking with android till MS can show me that its better.. for the longhaul as well. Its hard to beat an open development platform that can change to any manufacturers desire.

Does the Dell Mini 5 have an OLED/AMOLED screen?

I was expecting sooooooooo much more from the VPhone, namely video chat based on what they were talking about in November.
