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.
