Back in the day when the Nexus One and HD2 were just gleams in their manufacturers eye, the TG01 was the super spec'd device to drool over. The first phone
with the 1GHz Snapdragon processor, the handset had a then unthinkable 4.1 inch display. The TG01 was going to take handsets in a powerful new direction, which might have been true as the handset did usher in an age of larger screens and faster devices. Unfortunately for Toshiba, the TG01 did not go along for the ride as a strange looking UI and some lagging (despite the Snapdragon) held back sales. Now comes the sequel. The Toshiba TG02 has made it through the FCC on the road to displaying itself next month at the MWC. The handset offers quad-band GSM frequencies, but alas, no U.S. 3G. Windows Mobile 6.5.x should be on board. Other features include a 4.1 inch WVGA screen and a seemingly dated 3.2MP camera. Wi-Fi enabled, the handset also appears to be waterproof according to the FCC filing. Hopefully, Toshiba recognized the problems that kept the TG01 from breaking out and this time the TG02 catches on the way many thought the TG01 would.
