Toshiba will enter the smartphone market with touch-screen
Toshiba is entering the smartphone market in a big way with the TG01, a super-skinny full-touchscreen internet phone that is also optimised for gaming, movies and music.

The physique of the phone has prompted many to dub the new touch-screen an iPhone killer - it's skinnier, it's got a far bigger screen at 4.1" diameter, and features a Qualcomm 1Ghz processor powerful enough for mobile games like the graphics-rich Prince of Persia.

The phone runs on Windows Mobile 6.1, with Toshiba's own 3D GUI, GPS, Wi-Fi, HSDPA and a touchpad.

Touch-screen functionality makes it similar to the iPhone, as both; swiping and tapping actions can be used to navigate the customisable interface.

The phone will be officially announced at Mobile World Congress in a couple weeks, and is due for a summer 2009 release in Europe.
